U.S. stock futures are down to start the week following Friday’s sell-off — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
Investors are concerned with how aggressive the Federal Reserve will be with its upcoming interest rates hikes…
However, the bond market has been choppy for the past two weeks. This is a good sign because it indicates that most of the upcoming rate fluctuations are already priced into the market.
In other news, Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) rose 5% in premarket trading on reports that the social media giant is ready to reach a deal with Tesla CEO Elon Musk following his bid to buy the company.
And The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO) is up about 1% on better-than-expected earnings and revenue as companies continue reporting during another busy week for quarterly reports.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn why I’m focused on the bond market… why market internals are overbought… a preview of volatility and how it’s impacting stocks… the major levels to watch on the key indices and sectors… the biggest Fed data that’s crucial for the economy to digest… plus an earnings update on the biggest three companies reporting Monday.
