Week Ahead: 30/4 - 4/5

Last week was the 4th consecutive week the S&P 500, DOW and Nasdaq closed up higher without a down week in between. Looking back one year, the last time this happened in S&P 500 and DOW was late Sep - Oct 06 while for Nasdaq, it was dated way back in mid Oct- Nov 05. Oh and did I mention that the last time this pattern occurred in DOW, it was aiming at the 12,000 mark. And now less than a year later, we have just surpassed the 13,000 level.

The week ahead has some heavy-weight figure speaking and also the important unemployment report. We shall see how they move the market...
