LGT Navigator: Kick off to the fourth-quarter earnings season

The two major New York banks JPMorgan and Citigroup will open the quarterly round of corporate reports in the US today.

After the solid start to the year last week, stock markets are currently trending sideways.

After Trump's readiness to hand over power, investors are hoping for a more stable political environment and a renewed expansion of economic stimulus in the US to overcome the corona crisis under the new leadership of the future Biden administration.
