Here is what you need to know on Monday, November 22:

Thanksgiving week kicks off and the markets are in a festive mood. Well, the equity markets anyway. This bull just cannot be kept on a leash with more gains on Friday and record highs for Apple. Tesla breaks out and looks like more all-time highs are in sight as records just keep on tumbling in 2021. While Buffet may be in cash the market is certainly not ready to turn over just yet. EV and semiconductor stocks continue to charge while even energy stocks are making up for last week in Monday's premarket. Some key economic data in the shape of PMI's is to come this week and perhaps a new Fed Chairman, who knows? The market will then taper out for Thanksgiving on Thursday and Friday is hangover trading time so volume will be light (keep the sound down!).

The dollar is once again strong at $1.1250 now versus the euro while Bitcoin holds steady at $58,700, Oil is lower at $75 and Gold is $1830.
