BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- All traders needed was a day of burgers and beers on the Fourth of July to get back into buying mode this morning. Oh, and central bank intervention -- that helped too.China offered markets a surprise rate cut, a move that got mirrored by the European Central Bank this morning as the ECB cut its own main interest rate to a historic low of 0.75%. The rate cuts are designed to help support floundering growth in China and speed recovery in the eurozone, where lowered cost of capital should help spur economic activity. That's why the moves are helping to push worldwide share prices higher this morning. >>4 Stocks Set to Soar on Bullish Earnings Like I said last week, higher ground in the S&P 500 shouldn't be a big surprise. The bear trade was getting too crowded to make sense, especially with technical and fundamental arguments piling up in favor of the bulls. Of course, that doesn't mean that Mr. Market's headed straight up from this point on, but it does significantly skew the outcomes in favor of buyers in July. We're seeing that play out technically in a handful of the biggest stocks out there. Today, we'll take a look at how to trade these huge names. >>ACTIVE STOCK TRADERS: Check out Stockpickr's special offer for Real Money, headlined by Jim Cramer, now!
