5 Key Factors Affecting the Market This Week

by | Dec 19, 2022 | Market Updates

The major indexes are flat as investors weigh recession risks — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.

A lot of institutions and professional traders are already taking time off as we head into the holidays, leaving the market to smaller retail traders.

Any moves that occur during market hours during this time of the year tend to not be sustainable — without much volume, there’s not a lot of follow-through.

During times like these, I like to exercise more caution and hesitate to react to both breakouts and breakdowns.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss important levels on the bond market… key reports to keep an eye on this week… and why I don’t think we’ll have a Santa Claus rally this year!

P.S. Don’t Miss This Live Training!

With the markets so unpredictable and volatile lately, it’s been tricky to trade, even for pros.

That’s why I love my Quantum Indicator.

It allows me to quickly scan for stocks due for a pullback or bounce, signaling potential long and short trades.

And I’m going live at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Dec. 21, to share how it works… what it’s signaling… and how it can be a great addition to any trader’s toolbox.

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
