One quarter into 2022, the markets are still experiencing drawbacks.

Cboe Global Markets Inc. CBOE reports a decline in a number of U.S. funds tracking major indices, including the Nasdaq 100 Index, the Russell 2000 Index and the S&P 500 Index. Similar weakness is observed in European stock markets, specifically in Germany’s DAX 30, France’s CAC 40 and Europe’s MSCI European. 

Delta Airlines Inc. DAL wins this week’s chart of the month following a promising earnings report. 

This short glimpse of optimism is overshadowed by the stock market’s weakness, one that extended onto the cryptocurrency scene and its major coins. Finally, Cboe notes important upcoming earnings that may lift investors’ eyebrows in the following week.
