how has the stock market grown from 3,000 pts for the Dow? in 2009 to 30,000 pts? (that is like 10 x) its value a little over 10 yr. ago?

is this due to new money printing?  how much probably? what else? why?

    The Fed doesn't print money to make the market to go up or down. You really need to study it a bit more.

    In 2009, the Dow was at about 9000.  It's grown only a little more than 3X, much less than 4X since then, nowhere near 10X.  It hasn't been only 3000 since about 1992 - almost 30 years ago, not 10.

    Your numbers are not right, and the recent increase has absolutely nothing to do with the Fed "printing" money.

    You should read more about economics and the markets.

    S&P 500 EPS has inflated 40% in 10 years. There is a real growth in the market apparently exceeding the contribution of monitory policy.

    The Dow wasn't at 3000 in 2009.     At it's lowest it was about 6500.    The average closing price of the Dow in 2009 was about 8800.  You're way off.  LOL!

    At the average historical rate of return over the past 100 years, the stock market doubles about every seven years.   8800 doubled once is 17,600.   Doubled again would be 35,200.   So we're right on track with the past 100 years of average rate of return.

    Stock indexes go up when investors are willing to pay more for ownership in the companies on the index.   Investors are willing to pay more for more profit.   Gosh, you think there might be a link between the rise in stock prices and the rise in profit?

    It has ZERO to do with printing money.
