Time to Celebrate?

The S&P 500 finally vaulted back over the 50 day moving average on Monday. The catalyst was a combination of the following:

Strong Chinese data + lower odds of conflict with Syria + most US economic data looking better.

So is it time celebrate a new leg higher for the bull market?

I personally think the landscape is ripe for this move. However, there are still too many folks concerned about other open items (Syria, Debt Limit, QE Taper, etc). So align your portfolio for a move higher even if it doesn't unfurl just yet. Because if it doesn't break out right now, then it should soon enough.
