The major indexes were mixed Monday morning as traders considered the strength of the global financial sector in the wake of the recent banking crisis.
News broke that UBS will take over struggling Credit Suisse, helping regional banks to recover from last week’s carnage.
The SPDR Regional Banking ETF (NYSE: KRE) rose 2.7% premarket following its 14% tumble last week.
U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) and Truist Financial Corporation (NYSE: TFC) also rose early Monday morning, while First Republic Bank (NYSE: FRC) fell 17% in premarket trading.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss if bank stocks will crash and burn or rally hard… which sectors are most vulnerable right now… what to expect from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell this week… what bonds are telling us about the upcoming Fed rate hike… how the rest of the world is responding to the negative bank news… how to navigate the market this week… plus which sectors I believe have strong upside potential!
