The major indexes are flat to start the week as the market awaits a bevy of upcoming earnings reports.

This week’s reports will set the tone for the rest of earnings season, and give investors some insight into the health of these companies and the economy.

Investors have been eyeing the overall health of the Financials sector after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank last month, spurred a liquidity crisis.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) and Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) beat expectations on Friday, indicating larger banks are standing strong despite worries of a coming recession.

Earnings on deck this week include Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) after the close Tuesday, International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM) and Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI) after the close Wednesday, and AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) before the open Thursday.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss what to expect from the Federal Reserve this week… if rates will move up 0.25% or stay flat… which sectors are set to trade higher and which are in the danger zone… why I’m super cautious on the overall market right now… if bonds are pricing in a recession or if the Fed will lower rates due to deflation… the biggest reports on the table Monday… plus how to stay away from danger this week!

P.S. Bargains DO Exist in the Market

I love a good bargain, don’t you?

And little do people know… hefty bargains do exist in the stock market! You just have to know where to look.

The “pricing mismatch” I just discovered requires traders to disregard the share price and focus on the options…

And thanks to this mismatch, even a tiny 1% move in a stock could lead to gains as high as 31%… 41%… even 46% or more in a matter of days.

That’s why I just held a special presentation to show this “pricing mismatch” in action and how to apply it to options trades!
