A month ago, the sky was falling. The technical divergences seen in the market were coming home to roost. Growth was slowing. Indicators were falling. Moving averages were snapping. There was fear in the air. And for the first time in a very long time, it looked like the bears might actually be awakening from an extra-long hibernation.

But after a quick dip of about -9 percent and a very exciting joyride to the upside of more than +11 percent (and counting), the tide appears to have turned. No longer is #GrowthSlowing a problem because this just means more QE money printing is to come – and these days, nobody really cares what color the currency is. And more QE, of course, means there is more money in the system that will be looking for a home in a stock or bond market near you. So, in short, it’s all good, right?

If you have detected a wee bit of sarcasm sprinkled into this morning market missive so far, give yourself a gold star. You see, it seems that the central bankers of the world are trying to print their way to global prosperity. And while saving the world from a global banking meltdown in 2008 was definitely a good idea, it seems that the central bankers haven’t figured out that they simply must step away from the printing press at some point.

Cynicism and sarcasm aside, investors need to take note that the current rally might just be for real. You see, nobody REALLY wants to put money to work here. Everybody is looking for a better entry point. And yet, Ms. Market has managed to fool everyone and just march merrily higher. Are we having fun yet?

But there are reasons to be positive here. At least 8 of them by my quick count. So, let’s run through a few of these and see how we feel at the end.
