The major indexes jumped to start the week following Friday’s strong retail sales report — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
The retail sales report was one of the reasons the market rallied on Friday, and likely part of the reason it continued to rally Monday morning. We’re seeing followthrough from Friday, which is rare lately and bullish in my book.
Inflation expectations are also holding steady or improving along with consumer sentiment, according to a July survey from the University of Michigan.
And remember, consumers drive the economy, so if consumer sentiment remains strong, it’s a good thing for the majority of companies and the market.
This report also bodes well as consumers and investors alike look for the Federal Reserve to back off from its aggressive interest rate hikes.
Be aware that the week ahead may be a volatile one — earnings season continues with Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) reporting Tuesday, Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) and United Airlines Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: UAL) reporting Wednesday, American Airlines Group Inc. (Nasdaq: AAL) on Thursday and Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) on Friday.
