BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Mr. Market closed on a high note last week, the S&P 500 ending Friday at a fresh 52-week high after the big index plowed 2.23% higher than Tuesday's open. So much for a quiet short week after Labor Day.The rally last week is a big signal from investors; market participants finally appear ready and willing to shrug off the financial bogeyman as long as another round of quantitative easing is on the table from the Fed and the European Central Bank. According to Citigroup's latest round of number-crunching, the chances of QE3 now stand at 99% -- Royal Bank of Scotland analysts put their odds at 90%. Whatever the machinated percentages Wall Street firms are touting, it's clear they're betting on QE3.
