Stocks are actually having a good month
Stocks are finally on track for gains in July, though it's far from clear we've seen the last of the bear market gloom.
Driving the news: The S&P 500 is up 4% this month ... and if the month ended Tuesday it'd be the index's best showing since March.
Ten of the 11 industry sectors of the S&P 500 are flashing green, led by consumer discretionary, information technology and communication technology shares.
The tech-heavy Nasdaq has climbed a perky 6.2%.
The Russell 2000 index of smaller stocks is nearly 5.4% higher.
