Before we begin, I want to let you know that this morning’s Trading Pub Roundtable with Don Yocham — featuring Tactical Wealth Investor’s Garrett Baldwin, Jeffry Turnmire and yours truly, Senior Strategist Roger Scott — is about to begin at 10 a.m. ET!

We’ll discuss what this week’s inflation data is telling us about the economy, what to expect out of the equity and bond markets, and what opportunities could be a potential way to play the AI craze…

Go here to join us at 10 a.m. ET:

The major indexes are down as investors weigh inflation data and retail sales numbers — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.

While Tuesday’s Consumer Price Index report came in hot, indicating the Federal Reserve has a ways to go in the fight against inflation, retail sales numbers came in much better than expected.

January retail sales jumped 3% compared to analyst estimates of 1.9%, revealing that consumers continued to spend even as inflation ticked higher.

All eyes will be on Thursday’s Producer Price Index report for the full picture of the economy and how inflation is affecting producers.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss what to expect from the Fed in the next two sessions… how the Dow will trade over the next few days… if the Nasdaq will continue trading in a flag or break down… the most important earnings reports out this week and what they tell us… how to navigate the market right now… the most probable scenario for bonds… plus three long trades and two shorts for Wednesday!

P.S. What’s Causing One Bullish Trader to Turn Bearish

Many investors don’t realize this but…

This market is incredibly fragile.

More things are going wrong than right, and investors are about to be blindsided when massive amounts of cash start to flood out of their favorite stocks.

While this could spell disaster for anyone holding those stocks, people who realize where that cash is going and how to take advantage stand to profit.

And that’s exactly what New Money Crew’s Lance Ippolito is about to reveal during his special live event at 1 p.m. ET today, Feb. 15 — at no cost!
