The major indexes slipped lower Monday morning as bank stocks stumbled following last week’s closure of Silicon Valley Bank.

The news added more pressure to an already-strained market following Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s comments regarding inflation and the need to keep interest rates higher for longer.

This week, investors will watch to see how trouble in the financial sector plays out, as well as awaiting the latest round of inflation data.

We’ll get the latest Consumer Price Index report on Tuesday, with the Producer Price Index and retail sales data coming in on Wednesday.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss the biggest Fed data on the schedule this week… whether banks will continue to implode or bounce back… which sectors look ready for upside momentum… whether the Dow will remain choppy or shift to trending once again… critical levels for real estate and utilities and whether they’ll hold… plus how to approach the market this week and what seasonality is telling us for the week ahead!
