Following some notable gyrations during September, US equity indices have made significant pushes back toward all-time highs. Despite the US 10-year Treasury yield spiking to its highest level since May, tech stocks continued to move higher. Sentiment remains high as market participants now cast an eye to the corporate earnings season. With the seasonality effects and the potential for a strong slate of corporate earnings, major US indices may continue to stretch higher and retrace all of September’s decline.
