The market rebounded today and demonstrated the underlying strength. The bears once again failed to press the tape down. Now market is in red hot momentum territory. Such phase can be very profitable for short term trading as number of stocks make 10% plus move in a day increase sharply.
The stocks up 50% or more in a month is at 19. That is runaway moves market. One must play the momentum with one hand on exit door, but there is lots of money to be made in such runaway environment. It gets the bears blood boiling, hey but that is the way market operates. Keep buying the dips till it stops working.

As earnings start trickling in, some of the stocks running in anticipation of earnings are likely to breakdown post earnings.
