The markets are up big this morning following news that the U.S. is sending military, humanitarian and economic aid to Ukraine — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.
An initial $10 billion was requested, but strong bipartisan support led to a package of $13.6 billion in aid.
And while we have some important data being released this week — namely the Consumer Price Index and consumer sentiment — the markets are being overwhelmingly influenced by the Russia-Ukraine war.
And it seems fear over the war is, for the moment, fading again. The markets have been up and down but despite that, the bond market continues to sink. And that means there’s no longer a “flight to quality.”
In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll discover the major factors driving the market… the top sectors to follow… plus one long trade set up and one short, complete with options.

P.S. Traders Left to Fend for Themselves
Funds and institutions use algorithmic trading to give themselves an almost unfair advantage over the rest of the market… leaving other traders to fend for themselves.
That’s why I created this brand-new e-book where I breakdown how Wall Street has found a way to win no matter what direction the market goes.
I also put together a boot camp training session to break down how my strategy works, and show how any trader can use it to battle the algos in the market right now.
Watch It Here!
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.
