Rally on reassuring words from Ben

Market was looking for trigger for short-covering, which came from reassuring words from Bernanke. I don’t think anybody believes recovery is going to be that quick, not even Ben Bernanke. He knew he had to say it, so that markets can take a breather before they resume the selling again.

Is it the first time that markets have rallied on words of hope?
