Hamas attacks Israel
The Palestinian Hamas movement on Saturday launched brutal, large-scale attacks on Israel, with thousands of missiles and troops infiltrating much of the country’s south, deliberately killing hundreds of civilians and taking dozens hostage. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared war on Hamas, with the possibility of massive retaliation in the coming days and weeks.
This could disrupt the potential normalization of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has told US officials that it may increase oil production next year, as a potential goodwill gesture to get Congress to approve a US-Saudi defense agreement as part of Saudi Arabia’s recognition of Israel.
All of this could rattle financial markets, especially crude oil, on Monday.

Time the market with IBD’s ETF market strategy
What are you doing now
The stock market rally attempt showed a bullish move to close the week, with major indices seeing a bullish reversal on Friday and a slew of leading stocks issuing buy signals.
Investors could and perhaps should have added some exposure on Friday. If the market continues to behave well, continue to shift out of cash, but do so gradually.
Remember, stocks rebounded on Friday as Treasury yields retreated from their highs, but the rally in market prices continues. It’s easy to imagine the major indexes falling again if the 10-year Treasury yield closes at 5%.
So be prepared to pull back if the market or your positions start to falter.
But this weekend is a good time to prepare. Make sure your watchlists are up to date. Pay special attention to stocks that are exercisable or nearly exercisable.
Next week, investors will get inflation reports on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI). Earnings season will start with C. B. Morgan Chase (JBM), UnitedHealth (United nations) And Delta Airlines (D) between the main headlines.
