Dow, S&P 500 Pass Crucial Levels Ahead of Big Economic Reports

by | Mar 29, 2022 | Market Updates

Futures are up big as the Dow and S&P 500 look to lock in a four-day winning streak — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

Tuesday’s Consumer Confidence data as well as athletic apparel company Lululemon’s earnings report will give investors an idea of what to expect from Wednesday’s gross domestic product report (GDP). Retail sales make up 70% of GDP, so it’s always important data to consider.

GDP will further indicate whether or not the Federal Reserve should continue raising interest rates as aggressively as planned, or pull back slightly. If Lululemon has a poor earnings report and GDP misses expectations, it might be a warning for the Fed to slow things down.

The market is still being ruled by geopolitical events right now, but Consumer Confidence and GDP are important reports for the economy and markets.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll discover the two major earnings reports to watch… what’s next for the Dow Jones and S&P 500… which index continues to lag behind… a major sector breakdown… an update on GDP and how it will influence the bond market… plus the top stock in the top sector and the bottom stock in the bottom sector.

P.S. 600-Point Swings Create Perfect Environment for Overnight ‘Heater’ Trades

The markets have been up and down to say the least… In fact, it’s been like a roller coaster…

The Dow alone has been swinging on average 500 to 700 points every single day over the past few weeks…

And that can either demolish an account… or it can be the greatest edge a trader could possibly have

What will it be for you?

Let Joy of the Trade Head Trader Jeff Zananiri explain what we mean in this three-minute video.
