    Another reason to be bullish. Suggests that the slowdown is turning into expansion again.

     

    Tough to be a bear with so much recent bullish econ data.

     

    I have to admit I am scratching my head a bit at the idea that the markets are celebrating what amounts to a pretty sizable tax increase on just about everyone who holds a job in the US. Not sure how that is a positive but we'll see.

     

    Perhaps it is a short squeeze.

    Expansion on credit.
