For the past few days the stocksmarket has managed gains, and as of this writing the futures are looking strong. The reason given for this current mini-rally is that earnings are coming in stronger than expected. This is really laughable. Analysts, having been burned so badly in the past several years of "over-estimating" have low balled most of their projections, so it's really no surprise to have this excitement about "beating the Street" estimates. Accordingly, as I have said in previous posts there may be a short term rally in stocks, but with the fundamentals of the economy remaining dubious at best, this may be a great opportunity to sell into strength.
