This Sector Is Gaining Momentum as Oil Prices Rise Again

by | Apr 5, 2022 | Market Updates

U.S. stock futures fell after a two-session win streak during what is one of the strongest months for the market on average — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

Oil prices rose Tuesday as Western governments consider more sanctions against Moscow after uncovering more atrocities following Russia’s withdrawal from areas near Kyiv.

Volatility is still low, indicating the markets aren’t reacting based on fear. This is both surprising and a good sign considering the magnitude of the war and its effect on global markets.

We’re seeing some choppiness in the bond market. It’s priced in the Federal Reserve’s announcement regarding interest rate hikes, and appears to be consolidating before heading higher. An upward move in the bond market, tracked by the iShares 20-Plus Year Treasury Bond ETF (Nasdaq: TLT), would provide the chance to sell it, as the long-term trend will fall as the Fed moves forward with its rate hikes.

We also have the Federal Open Market Committee Meeting minutes coming on Wednesday, which will shed more light on the Fed’s sentiment regarding rate hikes.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll discover the major resistance levels on the S&P 500 and Dow… the biggest report to watch this week… which index is most vulnerable to downside trading pressure… a full update on all of the recent market action and how the bond market is reacting to the war… whether volatility is increasing in light of aggressive attacks on Ukraine… plus the top sector gaining momentum right now, and the top stock.
