Stocks rose on Friday, propelling the Nasdaq index to an 11-year high, after January's U.S. employment report sailed past expectations, boosting hopes the world's largest economy has turned a corner.

The broad-based gains also sent the Dow Jones industrial average to its highest in nearly five years. The S&P 500 extended its 2012 advance to about 7 percent.

The U.S. economy created jobs at the fastest pace in nine months in January and the unemployment rate dropped to nearly a three-year low of 8.3 percent.

I have been saying that things are turning around.

Let's hope we keep the monmentum throughout 2012!
