Happy 2012!The futures have just begun trading in the U.S., and are indicating a monster open for U.S. stocks.

Dow futures are up over 220.

S&P futures are up over 2%.

Of course, this comes on the heels of a big day in Europe yesterday. Germany’s DAX gained 3% yesterday and is up another 1% or so today.

Other European markets are rallying well.

Meanwhile, there’s plenty of good news to digest: German unemployment data, UK PMI data, and BRIC PMI data have all been strong, so plenty of reasons to buy.
