The week ahead: Home Depot, Walmart, Applied Materials, Cisco, Palo Alto and more.

Good Morning!

On the economic news front this week we get retail sales before the bell on Tuesday, and FOMC minutes release during the trading day on Wednesday. Looking out further, the Jackson Hole conference is Aug 24-26th titled “Structural Shifts in the Global Economy” so central bank talk will pick up later this month. This week sees some big box store retailers reporting, adding to the retail sales data and giving a look in on the American consumer.

Vol picked up the past two weeks as the market got a little more choppy than we’ve seen over most of the summer. SPY options are pricing about a 1.2% ($5.00) move for this week, and QQQ options are pricing about a 1.8% ($6.50) move for the week. 0DTE option prices have picked up a little with daily ranges often over 0.6%, they had been consistently 0.4% for a while. Something to keep an eye on as intraday movement has been picking up.
