U.S. stock futures are flat as the market tries to recover from the continual sell-off— and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
The biggest reports this week are retail sales and industrial production on Tuesday, and the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index report on Thursday. As I’ve said before, retail sales are important because it makes up two-thirds of the U.S. economy.
If the number is strong, it could cause stocks to rally…
But it’s all just a balance act between the Federal Reserve using higher interest rates to slow down demand and inflation, but not by so much that it pushes the U.S. into a recession.
However, if the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (Nasdaq: TLT) starts to become choppy, which is a real possibility because it’s been losing its vertical angle, it’s a good sign that the long bond has priced in rising rates and we may have a little reprieve.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn whether stocks are set to rise or fall… which sector is making major headways this week… whether volatility is sinking or exploding… the full Fed update for the week… what to expect from the major sectors… and whether the bond market is helping or hurting us…

He’s going to share a market phenomenon traders won’t hear about anywhere else…
In fact, no one is talking about this…
The media would rather recommend stocks that have already soared before getting crushed in these cut-throat markets…
And today, Jeff wants to share a few tickers that are tanking…
Because they’re primed for “16-hour snapbacks!”
