Earnings season is in full swing in the second half of April, with several Dow blue-chips making headlines. Fiscal first quarter earnings are expected to show steady progress in terms of revenue and profit, a sign that Wall Street is returning to profitability after a prolonged period of instability.

The economic calendar has a light schedule this week, with data on the U.S. housing market set to make headlines. The real estate market has shown resilience in the face of rising interest rates, a sign that more plentiful jobs and pent-up demand are enough to fuel the recovery – at least for now.

Consumer data and bank earnings were the main market movers last week. Compare this week’s Market Glance with the April 10 edition by clicking here.
