On Friday, the March jobs report was released, revealing some very encouraging data.
The 916,000 non-farm payrolls added for the month blew away expectations of roughly 625,000 new jobs. And the continued easing of coronavirus restrictions and stimulus measures are expected to keep the hiring boom going for several months.
With that in mind, here’s my market outlook for this week and beyond…
Even though the market was closed on Friday, Futures of the S&P 500, Dow, and Nasdaq all jumped on the good news.
Combined with a strong rally to end the week, we could see the market continue its upward momentum this week and beyond.
I’m going to continue to get long in these market conditions, but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Keep a sharp eye on the drag that rising inflation and interest rates will have on the market. You’ll need to be careful in picking the right stocks during this rally.
And as always, following the money will be crucial to identifying the best trades to take.
