The major indexes rose Thursday morning as investors process this week’s comments from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and look ahead to Friday’s jobs report.
Powell confirmed that the central bank might need to raise rates higher for longer than previously expected, but said no decision has been made for the upcoming March meeting.
Some economists expect a positive surprise Friday. This would be bad news for the market, as it would give the Fed cause to move ahead with more aggressive rate hikes.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why I believe stocks have more chop left in them… which companies report earnings today… why I love how Japan is handling the weakness in its economy… an update on Fed data on the table and what I believe it will do next… a clear technical picture of stocks and bonds for next few sessions… my top ETF that shows strong upside potential… plus three ETFs that show potential weakness ahead!

P.S. Will This Be the Biggest Cash Flood on Record?
Something shocking is about to happen on Wall Street.
And it could result in the biggest cash flood on record in the U.S. stock market…
Investors have more than $4.5 trillion in cash stashed inside money market accounts, just waiting for the right moment to get back into stocks.
I’ve singled out stocks to avoid during this coming cash flood, as well as where I believe the money is going to end up. And I just revealed it all during a special live event!
P.P.S. When it comes to trading, every second counts. And in choppy markets like these, often driven by headlines, stocks can make big moves in a flash.
That’s why I want you to get my latest trading ideas and market updates as fast as possible. So I’m rolling out an all-new option for my students to receive trade alerts with Telegram!

Each Thursday, I’ll combine two of my favorite things into a big-money opportunity: options plays and ETFs. Using options, we can turn momentum analysis of a specific sector — or even an entire country’s stock market — into an actionable trade with double- or triple-digit upside potential. I’ll give you all the details you need to execute this plan.
