Top Trading Links: Market Bulls Call For Moar Steam!

The underlying bid for stocks continues on. The S&P 500 gained 0.5 percent last week as investors digested earnings.

One nice surprise for bulls is how well investors have received bank earnings. Whether that reaction holds or not remains to be seen, but the banks have been very strong in April.

Looking forward, the market will continue to battle a thick band of resistance. And it may take some time to chew through it.  On the S&P 500, that resistance starts around 2100 and runs up to all-time highs around 2130.

We are moving very quickly into the end of a seasonal period – will ‘Sell In May” come into play again this year?

Without further adieu, let’s get after it.  Here’s the best of the week that was in the week’s “Top Trading Links.”
