The major indices are well off the lows, which has been a pattern for weeks now.  Investors keep buying, even the mini-dips, and it's been working.

The fear index, VIX, is well off its high point after making another lower high - a trend that has been in place for a long time

I feel good about this session - and there is a ton of money parked on the sidelines that is inching closer to cascading into the market.  Until earnings season, however, there will be bouts of uneasiness.
