Stocks are limping into earnings season, after a rough early October rout, and analysts say earnings could be what ultimately could help reverse losses. J.P. Morgan Chase is the first big blue chip to report, and is looked at as a bellwether for banks and the economy, so its report and outlook could be critical for how stocks trade on Friday. Futures were higher Thursday night, and if JPMorgan earnings help sustain the rally it could be important for the overall market.
