    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? In fact, by my measures, they had been right 5 of the last 6 times. This week makes 6 of 7, as we saw a 26% bullish shift in stock allocations going into this week.

    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.
