The mini-rally came after the release of a series of earnings reports, as well as the release of a more bullish-than-expected jobs report, suggesting investors have gained confidence seeing the shape of the the economy.
Yet markets are expected to remain fragile.

Some expressed concern that the Federal Reserve could continue to raise interest rates aggressively, while others wondered if the US economy could really be in a recession.
