The major indexes slipped Tuesday morning as investors await Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s latest comments on inflation — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

All eyes will be on Powell as he speaks before the Economic Club of Washington at 12:40 p.m. ET on Tuesday afternoon.

Markets and investors await  further clarity on where rates are headed next in the wake of last week’s 0.25% rate hike and blowout jobs data.

Meanwhile, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari said early Tuesday the Fed has not done enough to “declare victory” on inflation just yet.

“We need to raise rates aggressively to put a ceiling on inflation, then let monetary policy work its way through the economy,” he said.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss the impact Powell will have on the markets today… why the Dow is overbought… the earnings picture so far and what to expect in the next few sessions… whether investors are looking at earnings per share or forward-looking statements… which sectors are most vulnerable right now… plus which stocks I believe are due to see increased selling pressure.

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 just held a special presentation to show this “pricing mismatch” in action and how to apply it to options trades. So if you love a good bargain…
