Markets are staging a nice rally.

The Dow is at 15,036, up 126 points.  We last saw this index above 15,000 on June 20.

Earlier today, we learned that initial jobless claims dropped to 346,000 last week, and personal income jumped by 0.5% in May.

Pending home sales surged 6.7% in May, crushing expectations for a 1.0% gain.

If the markets stay green, this would be a 3-day win streak.
