The stock market has been on a rollercoaster ride this week as investors try to navigate the uncertainty of the current climate. On Tuesday, the S&P 500, Dow, and Nasdaq all finished lower in uncertain trading.
Today, investors are bracing for another day of volatility as the stock market opens Wednesday. According to CNBC, there are five things to know before the market opens. These include a potential rise in inflation, a new Federal Reserve policy, an earnings report from Apple, a new stimulus package, and the progress of the coronavirus vaccine.
Meanwhile, Investor’s Business Daily reported that futures rose on China’s economic data, while Tesla is setting up for its investor day. This news comes after the market rally closed poorly again on Tuesday.
Investors are also keeping an eye on the first solar earnings reports, which are due out late Tuesday. These reports could provide insight into the long-term outlook of the stock market.
With so many factors at play, investors should be prepared for another day of volatility as the stock market opens Wednesday.
