Before I get to today’s market outlook, I wanted to let you know that I’m holding a special open house session of my VIP Trade Room at noon ET today, April 12!

We’ll discuss today’s Consumer Price Index report, scan for opportunities and more!

Use this link to join me at noon ET today:

The major indexes climbed Wednesday morning following the March Consumer Price Index report.

March CPI rose 0.1% month over month versus 0.3% expected. While this is good news for the market, the report is not as bullish as it might appear…

Core CPI, which excludes food and energy, came in at 5.6% year over year. That’s in line with estimates, but above the previous month’s reading of 5.5%, indicating that inflation is getting slightly worse, not better.

The Federal Reserve will look at the core CPI data when determining the next step in its fight against inflation, so I’m being cautious.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why today’s CPI report puts the Fed in a corner… which sectors are most influenced and impacted by interest rate moves… whether small caps are leading the market or lagging behind… what happens to the real estate market and utilities when the Fed takes action… the top stock to go long in today’s tough market action… plus which two stocks I would fade right now!

P.S. Turn Deadbeat Stocks into Tradeable Opportunities

I’ve built my career exploiting the strongest stocks in the market…

But right now, the opportunity in the weakest stocks is too big to ignore.

I don’t have to tell you that stocks are crashing lower. Or that, unlike popular belief, most stocks actually go down over time, not up.

We’ve all experienced it.

But thanks to a single pattern that preceded some of the market’s biggest drops, we can use the worst stocks to find some of the best potential trading opportunities.

That’s why I just held a special training session to share my strategy!
