The markets rose Thursday morning as U.S. gross domestic product came in better than expected — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.

GDP came in at 2.9% quarter over quarter, lower than the previous figure of 3.2% but higher than the 2.7% expected, indicating that the economy remains strong even as investors continue to fear a coming recession.

GDP wasn’t the only number that gave the market a lift… Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) reported solid earnings and record revenue for the previous quarter after the close Wednesday, sending shares up 7% during after-market hours.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll reveal why I believe tech is in the danger zone right now… if bonds are headed higher or lower in the short term… the biggest Federal Reserve data impacting the market today… which earnings we need to pay close attention to in the next few sessions… the best sector for long positions… and the best stocks to trade to the downside right now, and why.

P.S. Hunt the Biggest Moves With This Indicator

With how news-driven and unpredictable the markets have been, trading has become more difficult than ever.

That’s why I love my Quantum Indicator. It uses historical data to help me decide where the market is likely headed next.

And it doesn’t matter whether we’re in a bull or bear market!

The Quantum Indicator signals long and short trades — which is critical in the current environment.

And I’m holding a special presentation at 11 a.m. ET today, Jan. 26, to share how it works… what it’s signaling right now… and how you can add this indicator to your trading toolbox.
