Jon Stewart Struggles to Keep Up (And Down) With the Stock Market (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Jon Stewart learned a valuable lesson on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). For the past week, the stock market has been fluctuating wildly, each time a new report came out regarding the economic conditions in Europe.

But as the markets vary, it should not be used as a barometer of how the economy is doing, and certainly now how you should be feeling. Unfortunately, Stewart was apparently celebrating the highs with certain drugs and the lows with others. It was party followed by gut-wrenching depression only to party it up again the next night.

When he found out there was a bailout deal reached Wednesday night, he couldn't understand why the market was reacting so much. That's because a volatile market is far more profitable for the traders on the floor and other investors. The more it swings, the more money they make. Just don't let your moods swing with it.
