The market stumbled to start the week as investors await the latest earnings reports and important remarks from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.

About half the companies in the S&P 500 have reported so far. With a load of earnings on deck, we’ll have a better idea of where the market stands by the end of the week.

Some of the heavy hitters reporting this week include DuPont de Nemours Inc. (NYSE: DD) on Tuesday before the market open, Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG) on Tuesday after the close, The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) on Wednesday after the close, and PepsiCo Inc. (Nasdaq: PEP) on Thursday before the open.

Friday’s blowout jobs number rattled the market and has investors worried the Fed will continue hiking rates. All eyes will be on Powell as he makes his latest comments in a speech before the Economic Club of Washington on Tuesday.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss what I really think about current stock market action… which stocks we need to pay close attention to this week… a major support area that may be broken sooner rather than later… the impact of bonds on stocks in the next few sessions… what momentum levels are telling us… which sector is fragmented and what it means for stocks… plus the biggest earnings reports this week and how to trade around them!

P.S. I Love a Good Bargain, Don’t You? 

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.

I’m holding a special presentation at 1 p.m. ET today, Feb. 6, to show this “pricing mismatch” in action and how to apply it to options trades. So if you love a good bargain…
