The newsflow is quiet, but the upward drift in the markets remains intact.Asian markets surged last night (Japan rose 2.4%!), and Europe is nicely higher as well (Italy up 1%, France up 0.6%).

The rally yesterday seemed to hae been spurred by a dovish tone from Bernanke. Other than that much, there isn’t that much knew for markets to be keying off of.
