    Are stocks really increasing in value, or is the dollar just decreasing in value?

      Good question.

      The value of stocks is dependent on their purchase, not the value of the dollar.

      If you and I and several others start buying large amounts of, say, General Electric stock the value of that stock will increase, conversely if we dump the stock its price will fall. Very simple to understand.

      Reading between the lines of your comment, purchasing stock does not necessarily equate with investment IF the central bank maintains artificially low interest rates, because the return on investment (interest) is so low. The converse would be true if interest rates were higher, that is market level interest rates. Then purchases of stock WOULD equate with increased investment because the expected return on such investment (interest) would be higher.
