Getting Slightly Stretched Here

Dow +134.22 at 18506.34, Nasdaq +28.33 at 5034.06, S&P+11.31 at 2163.73

The market jumped at the start of the session, trading higher alongside an extended rally in global markets. The Bank of England helped support recent bullishness when  members indicated that the central bank was likely to provide further policy stimulus next month. The Bank of England was widely expected to lower its lending rate at today’s meeting, but opted to examine incoming data to determine the size and nature of future stimulus. So expect more QE when needed.  Separately, JPMorgan  reported top- and bottom-line beats ahead of the open.  XLF ended up giving back a lot of gains though, and ended up  closing near the lows of the day.

The market is getting a tad stretched here, although its not really that overbought. A few days of sideways, corrective action would be healthy.
