A screen displays the Dow Jones Industrial average after the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange February 28, 2012. The Dow closed above 13,000 for the first time since 2008 and the S&P 500 also hit a milestone, as buoyant U.S. consumer confidence data and a sharp drop in oil prices nudged the nearly five-month rally forward.
