The major indexes fell to start the week as investors await key economic data — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
We get Purchasing Managers’ Index Composite Final and Factory Orders reports Monday, with Tuesday and Wednesday bringing data on International Trade in Goods and Services and Productivity and Costs, respectively.
The latest jobless claims report comes out Thursday, which will give the Federal Reserve more information on the health of the economy heading into its next two-day meeting on Dec. 13.
Friday will bring reports on the Producer Price Index as well as Consumer Sentiment.
December’s Fed meeting is one of the most anticipated. The central bank is expected to ease rate hikes from 0.75% to 0.50%. But with inflation still high and the job market still strong, there’s concern the Fed may opt for another 0.75% hike.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why the bond market is overbought… what to expect from energy markets… if the Dow will rise or pull back… why I like industrial stocks… what to expect for the first half of the week…. And why the PPI can shape the coming weeks ahead!
