The U.S. Stock market

  • The U.S. Stock market spent most of the week flat but was lifted to a strong close on Friday after a number of banks reported earnings at the end of the week.
  • Apparent progress in the US/China trade talks also helped, as did positive data on the labour market and news that inflation remained under control.
  • On the cautious side the IMF cut its global growth forecast and this may have tempered the market’s gains earlier in the week.
