The article discusses the large increase in the values of bank stocks and the broader markets that occurred on Monday March 23, 2009. The soaring prices are attributed to the plan released by the U.S. Treasury for a public-private partnership which would buy toxic assets held by U.S. banks. Also discussed is whether or not the stock market rally would be sustained over time.
