The major indexes dropped again this morning following their worst week since June — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
The Federal Reserve’s two-day meeting kicks off Tuesday, with most expecting the central bank to raise its benchmark interest rate by another 0.75%. The CME FedWatch Tool rates the probability of a 0.75% hike at 80%, with a 20% chance of a full 1% hike, down a bit from last week’s projections.
I expect the market to be subdued until we hear from the Fed, with the possibility for a relief rally on Tuesday if it moves ahead with the expected 0.75% rate hike.
It’s also a big week for housing data, with housing starts and permits on Tuesday, and mortgage applications and existing home sales on Wednesday.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss what to expect from the Fed this week… how to navigate the market right now… if we’ll have a Turnaround Tuesday… which three sectors are grossly oversold… whether volatility is done moving higher… plus an update on key price levels ahead of this week’s major Fed announcement.
