The major indexes rose Friday morning as investors continued monitoring the debt ceiling negotiations while Wall Street looks to lock in a winning week.
According to recent comments from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, a deal regarding the debt ceiling could be reached as early as next week.
Meanwhile, earnings reports continue to trickle in. Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE) beat earnings and revenue estimates, causing shares to gain 4%. Foot Locker Inc. (NYSE: FL) missed both top- and bottom-line estimates and reduced its outlook, causing shares to drop more than 25%.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss how to tell if algo traders are running wild again… which sectors are overbought… if the long bond market is overdone to the downside… whether odds are rising or falling that the Federal Reserve will not take action… a debt ceiling update for Friday… plus the one sector that’s driving momentum to a 1 ½-year high right now!

It’s not gold, real estate or anything like that… and it’s much larger and older than the stock market.
And trading veteran Celeste Lindman is going live at 1:30 p.m. today, May 19, to reveal exactly what it is!
