The Nasdaq Hits 4,000

On today's edition of the Motley Fool's MarketFoolery podcast, host Mark Reeth and Fool analysts Jason Moser and Matt Argersinger take a deep Foolish dive into the top investing stories of the day.

Just last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 closed above 16,000 and 1,800, respectively, each notching all-time highs. The NASDAQ (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC  ) briefly jumped above 4,000 today. It has topped that point before, but not for several years; the last time the index closed above that level was Sept. 7, 2000. Should this buoy investors' confidence, or is it time to be fearful when others are greedy? In this segment, Jason and Matt discuss how today's market compares to that of 2000 and whether they see warning signs of a bubble.

Millions of Americans have waited on the sidelines since the market meltdown in 2008 and 2009, too scared to invest and put their money at further risk. Yet those who've stayed out of the market have missed out on huge gains and put their financial futures in jeopardy. In our brand-new special report, "Your Essential Guide to Start Investing Today," The Motley Fool's personal finance experts show you why investing is so important and what you need to do to get started.
