NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

Markets could be in for another rough session Friday after disappointing earnings from JPMorgan.

U.S. stock futures dropped significantly after JPMorgan Chase (JPM) earnings missed forecasts. Investors didn't share the "growing confidence" that Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon talked about in his earnings statements.

The news was a bit rosier for Wells Fargo (WFC), which reported a double-digit gain for net profit in the first quarter. Shares role in premarket trading.

Earnings reports from big banks for the first quarter are dominating investor sentiment. Given yesterday's tech selloff, investor queasiness could easily spread into other corners of the market.

"With earnings season in the U.S. under way, tech company earnings will be under intense scrutiny with investors likely to dump their tech stocks on even the faintest sign of bad news out of a company," wrote Ishaq Siddiqi, market strategist for ETX Capital in London, in a report.
