Right when I started to get optimistic on stock market prospects, we have a fast and furious rally. The Dow ended up 11%, the S&P 11.5%, the DAX over 11%. And at the time of this writing, the Nikkei is up over 12%, and much of Asia is up over 5%. Oh well! The market might be getting ahead of itself. After all, much of the pain is yet to hit Main Street, and it's likely that when this fact sinks in, markets will fall again. It's likely we will see some weakness during which to enter the market.
