The rally could turn even more powerful in dollar terms if the dollar sells off vs. the Euro & other major currencies. But even if it doesn't, a pretty quick move up is possible. Just a sharp rally in a bear market. Will take more evidence to say the lows are in.

Icahn debated with Mr. Fink from Blackstone. Icahn said that banks have sharply reduced their ownership of high yield bonds, so liquidity in the event of a interest rate spike is much reduced, which could lead to air pocket declines. Icahn also said a lot of high yield bonds are in the oil drilling area, which could suffer from low oil prices.
