March 15, 2013

LONDON, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Markets continued their ascent as The Dow Jones closed high for the tenth consecutive
day. Major indices including S&P and NASDAQ also ended the session in the green zone.
While a report alluded to the ‘flare up’ in housing foreclosures, strong job data provided
positive fillip to the markets. However, with the sharp rise in the market, skepticism is
