On Monday, the S&P 500 jumped to its highest level in 13 months, marking a significant surge in investor optimism. Traders are hoping that the Federal Reserve will refrain from hiking rates in the imminent policy decision due this Wednesday. This leap represents a momentous occasion for the market, signifying the end of the bear market and the beginning of a potential bull run.
Upcoming Tuesday's inflation data could further bolster the narrative of decreasing inflation rates. Economists predict that the consumer price index will show inflation dropping to a 4% annual rate in May, a noticeable decrease from the 4.9% in the previous month.

This positive sentiment isn't limited to the S&P 500. Last week, the benchmark index reached a milestone by gaining more than 20% off its October low, prompting many investors to announce the end of the bear market. The Nasdaq Composite has seen even more substantial growth, up 33% from its 52-week low.
Leading the charge in Monday's surge were the Nasdaq and technology stocks, with giants like Amazon and Tesla each gaining more than 2%. This comes as the Nasdaq continues a seven-week winning streak.
This rally initiates a busy week for the US economy, with inflation data expected on Tuesday and the Federal Reserve's policy decision due on Wednesday afternoon. All three major indexes - the Nasdaq Composite, the S&P 500, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average - ended Monday higher, with Nasdaq leading the gains with a 1.53% rise.
Historical data also provides a silver lining for investors. After the end of previous bear markets, stocks such as Target (TGT), TJX (TJX), and Tyler Technologies (TYL) consistently outperformed, each jumping an average of 30% or more in just 12 months.
After a grueling 162 trading days to overcome the last bear market, such historical trends provide much-needed relief for investors. Ryan Detrick, a strategist at Carson Group, points out that the S&P 500 gained 28.2% on average in the 12 months after rising 20% from bear market lows.
While the market's optimism is currently high, investors should keep a keen eye on the upcoming inflation data and the Federal Reserve's policy decision. These factors could influence the trajectory of the market in the weeks and months to come.
