Stock Market Today: The JP Morgan Earnings Boost

Dan Russo

The sideways churn in stocks this week was pretty boring but also concerning as the S&P 500 Index has rallied a lot in a little time.

But news of strong JP Morgan earnings and China exports gave investors reason to cheer. So there’s your catalyst… at least for today. In today’s video we discuss the sideways consolidation, macro picture, and sectors / stocks we like. Here’s an overview:

JP Morgan starts Q1 earnings season off with a bang

Futures point to a strong open

Economic reports continue to point to decent growth without inflation

Note that Nick Webb is filling in for me today as I am on vacation.
