BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- An early rally is the hot topic of the morning: Investors are excited for a bullish push following positive economic data from China as well as less-stringent-than-expected financial regulations for banks following a Sunday meeting among worldwide officials in Basel, Switzerland.
In the People's Republic, a large ramp-up in industrial production coupled with strong retail sales numbers to excite investors about the Chinese economy -- considered not long ago to be a major growth opportunity for U.S. investors. While China's equity market contracted violently in the wake of 2008's credit crunch, the country is starting to show its bullish cards to investors once again. At the Basel meeting, while regulators mandated that banks would need to raise their capital minimums, they'll be given ample time to ramp up reserves.
