Market Update Into 4/19: Wall Street Analysts’ Estimates Routed by Positive Earnings Rolling In

That old adage, “Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst”, must have been hanging on the walls of most Wall St. analysts at the end of 2020; as their conservative estimates were seen biting the dust on Friday with positive earning reports rolling in one after the other. The macro-environment is showing positive numbers across the board with most stocks closing in the green. Banking, retail, and employment data point to a rebounding economy. However, some are worried that the economy might be burning from both ends and overheating too quickly; leading to calls for caution. With that being said, TrendSpider’s Chief Market Analyst, Jake Wujastyk, weekly index/ETF charts might shed some light on these calls for caution in the stock market.

In this blog post, make sure to check out the top 5 TrendSpider charts posted this week on social media; as well as the broad market charts into next week! If you missed Season 3 of The Stock Trading Pit, catch the recaps of every episode on our YouTube Channel.
