Investors decide they like the global stimulus as a catalyst to buy on Monday. Still weak volume and breadth, but upside nonetheless. The FOMC is still at the top of the watch list and weak economic data still holds hope for some that the Fed will delay hiking interest rates. Plenty to watch as this all unfolds near term.
