We are enjoying a nice breather today with the stock market snapping a 5-day losing streak, up over 150 points as I write this. Apparently the solons of the Street have changed their previous view that it's the end of the world. Fears of deflation were banished this morning by reports of rising industrial production.

I continue to see signs of a better economy by examining corporate earnings reports. Bonds are doing well for investors, but when bonds are broadly preferred to stocks, you really want to look at the stock market. That's where the money will be made in the next cycle.
