The market is flat to start the week as investors await key economic data and earnings reports from some of the biggest tech companies.
This week brings the latest Consumer Confidence and Personal Income and Outlays reports on Tuesday and Friday, respectively.
But the most anticipated economic data is Thursday’s gross domestic product, which will provide valuable insight into the health of the economy ahead of the Federal Reserve’s next meeting beginning on May 2.
Meanwhile, earnings season heats up as big tech prepares to report… Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL) and Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) report after the close Tuesday, Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: META) reports after the close Wednesday, and Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) reports after the close Thursday.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss which earnings we need to watch closely this week… the biggest Fed report to know about… why I believe the Nasdaq is super vulnerable right now… key levels on the bond market we need to pay attention to… which three sectors are showing the most vulnerability… how I’m positioning myself to reduce risk… plus where to find the biggest opportunities this week!
