Ring my Bell! Hillary Clinton opens the NYSE with a ding!

Monday September 21st, was a lucky day on the stock market because Secretary Hillary Clinton opened the day of trading by ringing the bell.

In the photos you can see her standing alongside NYSE-Euronext CEO, Duncan Niederauer, at the New York Stock Exchange. "We are honored to have Secretary Clinton kick-off the beginning of an important week by visiting the NYSE and ringing the Opening Bell," said Duncan Niederauer. "This week world leaders gather to attend the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly. Secretary Clinton’s visit to the New York Stock Exchange underscores the importance of strong capital markets to the global economy."

Hillary also said a few short words:

"I was here in my capacity as senator, so coming back as Secretary of State after all that we've done in the last year to try to pull ourselves out of this economic downturn -- it's very exciting to see."
