Two web sites in one!

By Donald Sensing

The stock market has decided that Obama will be reelected! And the indices go up like a bottle rocket!

But wait! There's more!

Just before noon today, the stock market exploded higher on no obvious news.
There were some rumors that Mitt Romney had opened up a major lead in Ohio
The Wall Street Journals' Paul Vigna thinks the rumor was started by a report that came from the Cincinnati Inquirer that put Romney ahead by 92,000 votes.
However, that report has been taken down and replaced with this message:
A Cincinnati.com front-page link to a chart with dummy data, created as a design template for election results, was inadvertently posted early Tuesday morning.
It purported to show early voting totals in Ohio counties. However, no votes have been counted yet – by law counting doesn't start until the polls close.
Cincinnati.com regrets the error.
It's worth noting, however, that the markets are still near their highs of the day.
That's Business Insider -- two web sites in one!

Here is the Dow Jones Index for today a half hour before closing for the day:

Your guess is as good as mine.
