I'm continuing my close watch of the markets for the week ahead, including some of the most impactful earnings reports that will act as a bellwether for the broader economy.

Despite recovering from last week's losses Monday morning, following Trump's tweet indicating progress in trade talks, the market has been trending down today as investors weigh possible signs of a weakening economy, more earning reports, and a renewed fall of the Treasury yields.

Traders have a positive feeling about how the Fed chair will address their ability to backstop trade uncertainties.
