Investors are still "very worried" and markets are choppy amid rising risks of a recession.

"Bespoke Investment Group said in a recent note that stocks are likely to open down for the quarter, as they did at the start of 2022. "The recession fears are back again," Bespoke Investment Group said, "especially in Europe. The only question is how long and how deep it will be."


"Most people are still looking at market advances with skepticism," says Adam Crisafulli, founder of Vital Knowledge. "Sentiment is hardly bullish," he adds. "Investors are very anxious about the approaching earnings season."

What To Watch:

A lot of economic data will be released this week. Investors will closely watch the release of the June jobs report on Friday, which is expected to show that job growth slowed to 250,000 non-farm payrolls (from 390,000 in May), according to estimates from Dow Jones. The Federal Reserve will also release minutes from its latest policy meeting on Wednesday.
