The Dow is up 20% from the November 20th low, and that magitude of increase usually suggests a bull market. However, I just don't buy it. I'd like to believe we are on the verge of a massive recovery in stock prices but I just can't see it developing. There are still so many structural economic problems to overcome I just can't get too optimistic. Futures indicate a higher opening but don't expect it to last into the day.
