The major indexes are down following the S&P 500’s best week since June — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
The big question this week is what major catalysts we can expect…
Remember, the market has a short-term memory, and it can go from bullish to bearish in an instant, or vice versa.
The Federal Reserve has offered little guidance on its next steps for interest rates, but the market appears to be pricing in a 0.50% increase after the December meeting.
The biggest news impacting the market this week will likely be earnings reports from major retailers The Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) on Tuesday.
Earnings estimates have been so low, these companies most likely won’t have a problem beating expectations. I’m more concerned about what guidance they offer for the next year, and what that will say about the state of the economy.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why market internals are overbought… if the bond market is helping stocks or putting more pressure on them… if this week’s Fed data will help the bulls or reinforce bears… the biggest catalyst to watch this week… and why the put-to-call ratio has me worried!
