NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The markets rallied Monday amid reports that S&P would review 15 eurozone nations for a downgrade.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 78.41, or 0.65%, to 12,097.83. The S&P 500 rose 12.80, or 1.03%, to 1257.08. The Nasdaq added 28.83, or 1.10%, to 2656.76.
Joe Terranova said on CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show that the S&P rating news is going to make it more difficult for the S&P 500 index to break above its 200-day moving average.
Tim Seymour called S&P's rating move "garbage." He said this was the same rating agency that didn't see any stress in the Germany's economy three weeks ago. He said it also hasn't seen the tightening in yields and austerity plans in Italy and Greece. He wondered why S&P is spreading so much chaos to the markets.For a breakout of some stocks from a recent "Fast Money" TV show, check out Dan Fitzpatrick's "3 Stocks I Saw on TV."
