The major indexes rose higher to start the week as traders look to build on Friday’s gains — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
Today is the first real trading day of the year as far as the market is concerned. Activity was subdued and random for the past few holiday-shortened weeks as many traders took off.
I expect we’ll see activity and volatility start to ramp up, especially with this week’s loaded agenda….
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell speaks on Tuesday, with other Fed officials speaking throughout the week.
We’ll also get the latest Consumer Price Index inflation data and jobless claims on Thursday, followed by import and export prices, and consumer sentiment info on Friday.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why we need to focus on resistance levels on the Nasdaq right now… whether stocks overreacted to Friday’s jobs report… why I believe tech is going to trade lower in the coming days… whether energy stocks are rising again or ready to revert lower… an update on China and how it’s going to impact stocks in the next few months… plus the biggest report this week and what to expect from the Fed!
