To the moon, Alice. China treads where the European Central Bank and the Fed already have in its rate cut this morning. Bulls emboldened and shorts on suicide watch. (Hat tip to Art Cashin) Panic short covering for the second day -- e.g., athenahealth (ATHN) on an earnings beat and upgrade, according to my institutional contacts. Not a short standing ... or vocal. A modest pullback midday was denied and we are at session highs. The US dollar is very strong  and the euro is at multi-month lows. Retail weak, inlfuenced by cautious comments from Skechers (SKX), VF Corp. (VFC),  Under Armour (UA) and, of course, Wal-Mart (WMT) previously. Even biowreck gets a reprieve today , with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) up by more than 2%. General Motors (GM) is the "world fair," hitting a new multi-month high. (A mistake in selling, as I posted earlier this week.) Apple (AAPL) up $3 despite a Citi move to take off its Focus List. Financials are extending the week's gains.  Banks up and so are life insurance in the face of rising yields. Notable weakness in Tesla (TSLA). Crude lower but energy stocks stable. Bonds were weak all day, municipals slightly lower in price. High yield is much better bid for a change. Gold weak, surprisingly in light of more cow bell. CNBC Blather -- 23 bulls and no bears today. I substantially lowered my gross exposure
