The month ahead is poised to be a bright one for the market, analysts say. April began with a staggering jobs report for March, and economists are anticipating a strong second quarter. On Thursday, the last day for trading in the holiday-shortened week, the S&P 500 increased 1.2%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose over 170 points and the Nasdaq Composite jumped 1.8%.
Looking ahead, April is generally a pretty positive month for stocks.
“April is really good,” said the chief investment strategist at CFRA. “It’s the best month in terms of average price change. The second quarter is not a bad quarter on average. It’s up 2.8% on average since 1990, and all 11 sectors have posted average gains.”
And the Federal Reserve will release the minutes from its latest meeting next Wednesday, with Chairman Jerome Powell slated to speak about the global economy on Thursday.
