US markets extended their recent rally, managing to finish on high for the 3rd consecutive week. Despite the oil drop and the results that have been presented have not been very exciting in terms of revenues, most of the S & P sectors closed higher. One reason for the Friday climb was the need for many fund managers follow the rise of the benchmarks. Another reason was the fact that the S & P have overcome a major area of resistance of 2020, which triggered purchases of many quantitative models of trading. Despite these reasons, the earnings season continues to be the main topic on Wall Street.

The Earnings Season remains the central theme. This Season has been marked by the high percentage of companies providing higher than estimated profits (about 74%) in opposition to a worrying proportion (60%) of companies reporting lower revenue than estimated. While profits depend on various factors (sales, costs, supplies, accounting rules, etc.), revenues depend primarily on demand for goods and services that businesses provide. Such demand depends on the degree of activity of the economies in which they operate. As such, the weakness of the American multinational sales are an alarming sign about the state of the global economy. Still, investors have shown a complacent attitude towards this standard.
