Monday Market Must-Knows: April, 18 2022

What we know right now is that the Fed funds rate is really in the spotlight as we're going to be raising rates more aggressively. Jerome Powell is speaking at the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank about economic conditions on Thursday at 1PM EDT. He is one who can be a mover and shaker of financial markets right now, so the focus is on what is he going to say this week. 

As a result, volatility will most likely be higher on Thursday. So be very careful now.

We've got 253 companies reporting this week, including Netflix, Johnson and Johnson, Tesla, Philip Morris and many others.

As always, if you’re in the markets, make sure you have a trade plan.
