With Trepidation, Onwards and Upwards

Here is the segment from this morning’s (May 8) Squawk Box with a really good discussion on the stock market, economy, employment numbers and the Fed.

Many of the small cracks I saw in the markets a month ago have repaired themselves with sideways action instead an outright correction. The canaries of liquidity, high yield bonds, small cap stocks and the New York Stock Exchange advance/decline line are all seeing all time highs. The Dow Jones Transportation Index has played catch up with the Dow Jones Industrials and both are now in gear to the upside at all time highs. We have seen some positive sector rotation since last Friday that has fueled this recent rally. And even gold is popping higher.
