Now, on to today’s stock market recap…

The major indexes are up as investors shake off hawkish comments from two Federal Reserve officials on Monday.

Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic said interest rates should stay above 5% for a “long time,” while San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly believes the central bank should continue raising rates at a slow pace.

Investors are still concerned higher rates could tip the economy into a recession. And all eyes will be on Thursday’s upcoming Consumer Price Index data, which will give us more details into whether the Fed’s rate hikes are cooling off inflation.

Friday’s consumer sentiment data will provide further insight into the state of the economy, as will this week’s bank earnings on Friday.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss key levels for the major indices… which stocks to pay close attention to… whether CPI is going to influence market action… if bonds will continue trading higher or revert lower… if energy or industrial stocks will lead right now… whether momentum levels are increasing or decreasing… what to expect later in the week after the Fed data is released… plus the top stocks to own and weak ones to sell.

P.S. The Key Time to Trade During Earnings

Tom Busby and I believe we’ve cracked the code to tap into this unique earnings drift phenomenon…

And we’re holding a special live presentation at 1 p.m. today, Jan. 10, to share all the details on this breakthrough earnings strategy, right at the start of earnings season!
