3 events that will make the market for October

Cramer next week: 3 events that will determine if the market's bad momentum continues into October

CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Friday said that three key events next week will determine whether the gloomy month for the stock market continues into October.

Here are the events:

  • The release of the non-farm labor report on Friday. Cramer said he expects it to show hiring and rising wages.
  • Two speeches by Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester, who Cramer believes is a key inflation driver on the Federal Open Market Committee. “She wants to protect us… from high inflation, even if that means raising interest rates into a recession,” he said.

The S&P 500 index ended its worst month since March 2020 on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite fell 8.8% and 10.5%, respectively, for the month.

While it’s likely that both Mester and the report bring bad news, investors can protect themselves from a market crash if they follow a solid game plan, according to Cramer.

“Owning high-quality companies with good balance sheets and high dividends would benefit from a reduction in inflation, because that’s what’s going to happen.” he say.

He also previewed next week’s earnings plan. All earnings and revenue estimates are provided by FactSet.
