The markets opened down as inflation set a new 40-year high and another round of talks between Russia and Ukraine ended without progress — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.
After cooling off on Wednesday, oil prices are on the rise again as Russia and Ukraine failed to make progress on agreements for a ceasefire or safe passages for evacuating civilians.
The Federal Reserve has already said it plans to raise interest rates, although less aggressively than it had planned.
And with February’s consumer price index rising 7.9% over the past 12 months — more than expected and setting yet another 40-year high — rate hikes are likely to come sooner than later.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll discover whether volatility is increasing or decreasing… whether investors are piling into puts or calls… which four sectors continue to lead the market… which group of stocks is prime for strength… plus my top ETF with option and strike price for a real probability at profits over the next few months.

P.S. Traders Left to Fend for Themselves
I’ve coded an algorithm that’s designed to capitalize in any market condition.
It isolates the top stocks on Wall Street, which I call “Super Stocks.”
All I have to do is “flip a switch” on the algo to get a brand-new batch of trades, and I want to make sure everyone can get in on these opportunities.
So I’m inviting people to join me and the other traders already capitalizing on these Super Stocks, right now!
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!
Telegram allows me to get trade ideas, videos and watchlists to you in a matter of seconds.
Check out this short article we put together with instructions on how to download telegram and access my private channel. Go here to get the details.

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.
