From Doug Short. Justin Fox does some crystal ball reading:

The big bounceback could simply reflect a correction of the extreme, the-world-is-about-to-end pessimism that prevailed in the early part of this year, not a bet that robust growth is in the offing. But I still have this feeling that Rosenberg's prediction [for a sputtering stock market through year-end] will turn out to be right.

Jack Mchugh does some more market analysis.
