NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Earnings season is under way, and TheStreet's Jill Malandrino and David Peltier are previewing the financial sector, and they reviewed a notable trade in the volatility index.
When stocks run ahead of earnings, profit-taking shouldn't come as a surprise, Peltier said, regardless of whether the report was good or bad.
Although the bulk of earnings season is several weeks away, the financial sector will be in the spotlight this week, Malandrino noted.
