This Week’s Market Moving Events

Market Recap:

Stocks fell on Friday in an otherwise positive week for investors, as worries over earnings season and news of the death of Saudi Arabia’s ruling King Abdula caused renewed investor anxiety. Moreover, market participants grew increasingly uneasy ahead of Greece’s general election, in which Leftist Alexix Tsipras did (as expected ahead of Sunday’s election) win majority. The win by the socialist Syriza party brings Greece back to the front-burner and adds to Europe’s already plentiful woes.

Looking Ahead:

In addition to a monstrous snow storm that will impact travel and economic activity in the North East over the next couple of days, Wall Street traders will be focusing on today’s Dallas Manufacturing report and tomorrow’s full economic calendar that includes the kick-off of the years’ first FOMC meeting and a deluge of earnings.
