What will drive the markets this week?

Investors closed April on a high note as the major indices notched substantial monthly gains and despite stocks falling on last day of trading on fears that strong data may cause the Federal Reserve to ease back on monetary policy sooner than expected.

The earnings season continues this week, with over 900 fiscal reports expected from retailers, Big Pharma, energy companies, and consumer staples.

Earnings have so far come much better than expected with profits beating analysts’ estimates by more than 40% and revenue by over 20%. Still, most companies are not seeing their stocks rise on better results, and investors may be selling on the news and taking some healthy profits with them.

Investors will also digest the April employment report for the U.S, and other data from across the world.
