It seems that the tide may finally be turning. Stock prices are going up as investors are beginning to realize that the financial world is not coming to an end. Big name companies like Google (Nasdaq-GOOG) are reporting stronger than expected earnings and even some of the financials are beginning to show signs that the worst may be over. Remember that there is a ton of cash on the sidelines and if the stock market continues to show any upward momentum there will be a rush of new money into the market that will spark further price rises as money mangers will not want to miss the boat. To be sure, there are still many problems in the economy that will not go way over night, but it just could be that the worst is finally over.
