Market Sinks Despite BIG Apple Earnings. Are We Near a Bottom Yet?

by | Jan 28, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

The major indices are mostly down again as Wall Street’s worst sell-off since March 2020 continues — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.

Dow futures swung from a 250-point gain overnight to a 100-point hole amid volatility. Right now, it’s hovering near its 200-day moving average. If it can rise above this point of support, things should start to look up.

A lot of investors thought the Dow would hold up better due to strong earnings from Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) after the bell Thursday. 

The tech giant reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings of $2.10 per share compared to estimates of $1.89, representing an earnings surprise of 11.11%.

Apple was up 2.5% in premarket trading.

Elsewhere in the news, we have analyst calls from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS), Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) to look forward to. 

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you will discover whether Apple earnings can move markets… why I believe the market is close to bottoming out… key levels on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq… an update on volatility levels and Federal Reserve data… and two profitable closed trades from this week’s action.
