Futures fell to start the week as traders prepare for earnings season — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
PepsiCo Inc. (Nasdaq: PEP) and Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE: DAL) will be the first to report earnings Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, while JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS), Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) report at the end of the week.
On Monday and Tuesday, several Federal Reserve members will speak and the focus will be whether or not they seem confident in the economy, especially since their statements will come ahead of Wednesday’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) report…
The CPI will tell us how inflation is affecting consumers. The consensus this time around is 8.8%, which is relatively high — the previous reading came in at 8.6% and it caused major indexes to plummet.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn why bonds are more important than ever… get a critical update on the Energy sector… learn how to interpret the upcoming CPI report… a breakdown of the top earnings this week… and how I’m trading this market.

P.S. Did You Catch This Urgent Training Session?
The market sits at a major crossroad.
No one knows for sure which way things will move next. And anyone that tells you otherwise is lying.

P.P.S. When it comes to trading, every second counts. And in choppy markets like these, often driven by headlines, stocks can make big moves in a flash.
That’s why I want you to get my latest trading ideas and market updates as fast as possible. So I’m rolling out an all-new option for my students to receive trade alerts with Telegram!
