NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The market heads into the thick of earnings season next week, but investors have already become accustomed to better-than-expected results since half of the Dow components that already reported have beaten estimates. With earnings anxiety largely dissolved, the market can shift its attention to the Federal Reserve's Federal Open Market Committee rate decision on Wednesday and Friday's GDP report for the latest read on the strength of the economic recovery."What we've seen so far is a very strong earnings season, but the market isn't really reacting that much, perhaps because people were expecting strong improvement," said Michael Sansoterra, portfolio manager for the RidgeWorth Large Cap Growth Fund.
