Your First Move For Monday October 13th


After the Dow ended its worst week in history, the traders put together some thoughts on the week ahead.

Earnings season is coming and investors will have to focus on underlying fundamentals and not just panic and fear, says Karen Finerman.

With all the big hedge funds struggling in this market I can’t help but think if you’re not humble in the market place the market has a funny way of teaching you humility, adds Joe Terranova.

Johnson & Johnson has a great balance sheet and they release numbers on Tuesday. I wouldn’t rush in before earnings but maybe after, counsels Guy Adami.

This was s a tough week, don’t expect the market to come screaming back. It’s one thing to stop the bleeding it’s another to grow, observes Jeff Macke.
