After a surprisingly strong finish to 2016, the new year is shaping up to be a good one for stocks. The shorter trading week, thanks to the New Year’s Day holiday, brought decent gains to investors. The upcoming week could be more of the same.

Data has turned optimistically bullish in recent weeks as President-elect Trump is expected to deliver on his promises.
