You see them. These big-cap stocks breaking out. All over the place. McDonald's (MCD) is making a comeback. Action Alerts PLUS holding Microsoft (MSFT) has left a lot of runway behind. Salesforce (CRM)  , a new AAP addition, is through the $100 billion barrier. Home Depot's (HD) getting back in contention.

This is all a part of the assault on the January highs. To me it looks like it could happen because of the vacuum, the dearth of negatives and, most important, the employment report last Friday. Today is exactly what I am talking about. It's so hard to keep a market down when you have that number in your mind.

So, think twice before you sell even with all that is on the international slate. Keep thinking: business is good, employment is great. It will stop you from getting too negative over all of what are most likely failed summits we've got over the coming days.
