**__ Diplomatt’s Daily Digest – January 18, 2022__**
Good morning and happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you all had a good, long, restful weekend. Let’s get into this short trading week! U.S. stock futures fell sharply this morning as traders braced for the latest batch of corporate earnings reports and as government bond yields hit Covid-era highs. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield jumped to its highest point in two years, topping 1.83%. The shortened trading week will feature quarterly reports from 35 companies in the S&P 500, including Bank of America, UnitedHealth, Goldman Sachs, and Netflix. The drumbeats of war are ever-increasing as peace talks between Russia, the U.S, and NATO fell apart last week. Investors will certainly want to monitor these events as this powder keg could certainly lead to farcet5zeaching consequences.
