The NASDAQ Composite, which was 1484.43 at noon on January 20th when Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States, just closed for the day at 1491.22, according to the CNBC ticker. The Dow and the S&P still have a little ways to go, however.

Disclaimer: Yes, this is a stupid way to look at the stock market (that’s the whole point). For a smart way, see Hussman.
