    Stocks gapped up higher on Tuesday, which is what we might expect after Monday's late positive reversal day. The rally stalled and faded in the final hour, so now we head into Wednesday with a negative reversal day.

    Stocks seem to be in that euphoric phase again, at least in this cycle of the bear market rally. The Dow rallied back again after the small losses on Tuesday, and it is making it tough for most investors to sit back and watch, so the fear of missing out rally continues during this historic bear market rally.
