U.S. Stocks on the rise.

Today U.S. stocks moved upward as the Standard & Poor's 500 inched closer to breaking a day decline. Today we also saw Chinese trade data beat expectations, while analyst go over the jobless numbers from earlier this week hoping to pin point a time when the Fed will start cutting back on their quantitative easing. 
Some key stocks that were on the rise were Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE: CLF) and Newmont Mining Corp. (NYSE: NEM) which both gained at least 7.1% as metal prices rallied in the commodities market. 
With all this news to be honest no one really has a good fix on when the Fed will start slowing down its QE program. But its great news to hear China is doing better than expected, but we still have to worry about what those jobless claims really mean for the American economy. Most of the new jobs people are getting hired for in America don't pay enough to pay the bills so how much better are we really?
