The Bottom Line: Markets on Edge
Last week’s U.S. GDP report came in significantly lower than expected, setting markets on edge. The last thing investors want to see is the economy screech to a halt with rates already at historic lows. Earnings will be especially under the microscope this week; the market will be hoping on strength from individual bellwethers to help boost sentiment on Wall Street.
