    Remember over the weekend when I posted some statistical information about the Top 50 and how when they shift their allocations by more than 20% they've generally been right?

    Another big move, different day.

    Stocks gapped at the open and never looked back. It actually started in Asia where their major averages advanced well above 1% on average. And then Europe followed suit with average gains in the vicinity of 2% for their major bourses.

    From there it spilled over into our market where another day of relatively strong earnings reports helped drive prices higher.
