BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Traders are reluctantly slinking their way back to their desks this morning, the first market session after the a three-day reprieve from trading.
The extended holiday should have given market participants a chance to rethink their assumptions going into April -- and to decide whether they're betting on a rally to continue into April, or fizzle out entirely. At this point, popular sentiment has clearly moved from bullish to bearish, even if the fundamental and technical picture hasn't actually reflected the same.
But there is a big catalyst for some fundamental-driven price action coming our way this week: I'm talking about earnings season.
