Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading near Friday’s close. Let’s get into it…
Investors are preparing for more quarterly earnings reports, with stock futures being mostly flat this morning. Earnings season has picked up with results from financial names like State Street, M&T Bank, and Charles Schwab. Despite concerns over the financial sector, data from Bank of America shows that this earnings reporting season may already be faring better than expected, with 90% of companies beating EPS estimates during the first week. The reporting period for financial companies and banks continues with reports from Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley. Results from electric vehicle heavyweight Tesla, IBM, and Netflix are also due out.
The $SPY is currently trading near the 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) on a 1-hour chart, which has provided support earlier this month. This suggests that the bullish momentum might continue today. However, it is worth noting that the market experienced selling around $415, which could potentially act as resistance if the price approaches this level today.
