Stock market recovery

The recovery of the global stock market index continued last week. The S&P 500 index also rose sharply and volatility fell significantly in the last two weeks. This is a positive development. From a technical perspective, a slight uptrend is now emerging again in the US.

For 1Q the S&P 500 is currently expected to post +10.7% (y/y) revenue growth and +4.8% (y/y) earnings growth.
