The major indexes slumped as investors brace for a busy week of earnings and the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate announcement — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.

The Federal Open Market Committee meeting starts on Tuesday, with the Fed expected to announce a 0.25% interest rate hike on Wednesday.

This week also brings some of the most important earnings reports of the season.

General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) reports before the bell on Tuesday, and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: AMD) reports after the bell.

Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: META) reports after the bell on Wednesday, while tech titans Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL) and Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) all report after the bell on Thursday.

I’m expecting a lot of volatility and non-directional trading this week.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss the biggest earnings coming out this week and why we need to be careful… if the bond market is our friend or enemy as we head into tech earnings… whether tech will rise or fall in the coming weeks… which sectors remain the strongest and why… why trading blue chips has been frustrating the last few months… what I expect from the Fed this week… how to gauge price levels on the three major indexes… plus where the action is in the second part of the week!
