    Stocks continue to ease higher, but Dave Kansas sees three moves that may be telling a more bullish picture. Bank stocks are moving briskly higher, with JPM, WFC, BAC and C up more than 1%. Techs are also showing positive leadership. Cyclical stocks such as CAT and DE are strongly outpacing growth stocks, as investors bet on a solid economic rebound.

    The CEO of Bunge (BG), seeing tight grain conditions next year, is unconvinced high prices are here to stay. Corn at $6 and beans at $14 will have Brazilian farmers planting more. “It doesn’t worry me,” says Alberto Weisser, “I think there is enough land available. There is enough water available.”

    Investors focus on GE's Q3 profit and sales decline, taking little solace from Jeffrey Immelt's remarks that results "should give investors confidence" in a "renewed" GE. Shares -2.6% premarket and pressuring Caterpillar (CAT), Honeywell (HON) and United Technologies (UTX), all of whom report earnings next week.

    Market recap: Stocks burst out of the gate this morning and stayed strong, as economic reports from the U.S. (I, II) and Germany - plus a bullish word from David Tepper - boosted confidence. The dollar fell, raising industrials such as Caterpillar and Alcoa to the top of the day's leader board. Treasurys fell, lifting the yield on the 10-year note to 2.61%. NYSE advancers led decliners four to one.
