Most of the major indices opened higher on the last trading day of January — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
The bond market has stopped falling, indicating that the worst should be behind us. Remember, when bonds go up, interest rates go down. So if the bond market starts rising again, that means interest rates should stay low, which is good for the markets.
Friday was also one of the best days for the market so far this year. The Dow and the S&P 500 rose 1.7% and 2.4%, respectively, while the Nasdaq rallied 3.1%.
We also had better-than-expected earnings reports from Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) last week.
And this week, we’ll see earnings from industry titans Alphabet Inc. Class C (Nasdaq: GOOG), General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM), Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) and Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F).
In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll discover the current resistance levels for the major indices… current support levels for major ETFs… full analysis on market volatility… whether the bulls will regain strength… plus a full weekly outlook from the Federal Reserve with a focus on one sector.
