    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.
