Economic releases dominate the calendar for the holiday-shortened week ahead. The Empire State Manufacturing Index will be released on January 18 to be followed by the produce price index report and retail sales report on January 19. The retail sales number for December is expected to be influenced by a more pronounced pull-forward of holiday sales in 2022 and weakness in categories that are associated with holiday shopping like clothing, furniture, general merchandise, and department stores. The week also includes a heavy slate of speeches from Federal Reserve members as the critical January 31-February 1 meeting of the FOMC starts to get closer. The earnings season kicks up another notch with key reports due in from Goldman Sachs (GS), Netflix (NFLX) and Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG). There is also a political wildcard to watch after the Treasury Department warned the U.S. will reach the debt limit on January 19 and will need extraordinary measures from Congress to avoid a default. In a technical look at the market, Fairlead Strategies warned that investors may be out in front of their skis with more than 60% of the S&P 500 stocks now affected by short-term overbought conditions. Analyst Katie Stockton said the overbought conditions suggests momentum will fade next week. "Past peaks in this breadth measure have provided early warning, preceding downdrafts in the SPX by a week or two," she noted.

I wish SA would have next week article on Fridays before market closes. That way information can be used to be pro active for the following week by opening positions on Friday.

I believe Empire is on Jan 17 and retail sales, PPI and industrial production are Jan 18.
I am long on PG. Up over $17 a share. Not bad. (profile). Best holding increase is CAT which is up $57 a share. January has been a very good month so far. May we continue to prosper.

@aristocrat & Dividend King Investor I'm sure I don't have to warn you but will do so anyhow that which goes up must come down probably, by the second quarter.

"2022 Recession or 2023 Recession?"

Seems to me 2022 was the start. Short
vs long Treasury inverted for a start.

No NEE or COST I see. Also water stocks.
Canadian psychotropic-drug company "Lucy Scientific" goes public this week...Will she be a" diamond" or just a lump of un-pressurized carbon?
Maybe some" girl with kaleidoscope eyes" out there has the answer...
What drew me to "Follow" this weekly story was the anticipated Notable Dividend changes each week but recently I have not seen this. I am disappointed that this section has not been included recently.
As if SI earnings even matters at this point. SilverGate is a borderline criminal enterprise masquerading as a legitimate bank. When you need to launder come to SilverGate.
What is causing big banks to reverse course from down to up Friday with respect to the earnings reports?
@tzeshan I believe that when the market opens traders are reacting to the headline numbers but once the earnings call where management discusses their results traders reevaluate the earnings news. Often the market reverses course, up or down, once hearing what they have to say.
