It's an earnings bonanza.
Jim Cramer's weighing in on JPMorgan Chase's earnings, the stocks that he's got his eye on and what he's watching closely in the markets.
All Eyes on the Markets Real Money technical analyst Helene Meisler wrote about her thoughts on the market early Tuesday morning.
She believes that the market is overbought.
Meisler wrote: We are overbought and sentiment is still relatively elevated, so for now I expect a pick up in volatility in the next week or so.
Should the indicators change their direction I will report that to you.
It is always possible we digest the overbought reading and work off the too hot sentiment.
It's too soon to tell.
Cramer said that he trusts her insight.
