The S&P 500 is near an all-time record. The index is up 36 points today to 2925, the highest since May 6.

Two factors have sparked the rally:
1) Draghi saying the ECB will implement additional stimulus unless the situation on growth and inflation improves
2) Trump saying an extended meeting with Xi will take place at the G20

The thing is, the market might get it all. The risk is the Fed isn't so dovish tomorrow and the optimism evaporates.
