It's Monday!

Jim Cramer's breaking down what he's watching in the markets.

Let's Talk Football...And Finance 

Cramer wrote about how investors can avoid being sacked in a market that's ripe with uncertainty.

"So, let's play some financial football. You are the quarterback. Your opponent orders an all-out UNEXPECTED blitz and you are definitively not ready for it after a 30% rally and a level of confidence as marked, or marred, by an overbought market with much more greed--97% on the CNN Index--than fear," wrote Cramer.

What’s Going on in the Middle East?

Since Thursday night, when the U.S. announced that it had killed Iran's top general, Qassem Soleimani, in a military strike, there's been quite a few headlines concerning the Middle East.

Following the death, Iran vowed retaliation.

Then the Iraqi parliament voted over the weekend in favor of expelling U.S. military forces in Iraq.

And President Donald Trump responded, saying that the U.S. wouldn’t leave Iraq unless Iaq paid for the airbase and Trump threatened sanctions.

Soleimani's sister, Zeinab Soleimani, vowed revenge in a nationally televised address, while Iran's leaders said they would immediately roll back on commitments linked to the 2015 non-proliferation agreement that Trump abruptly abandoned in 2018.

Netflix Didn’t Quite Steal the Red Carpet

Real Money Stock of the Day Netflix didn't own the red carpet at the Golden Globes.

The streaming service walked in with 17 nominations but left with two wins.

The studio even had four nominations for best picture.

The wins went to Laura Dern for her supporting performance as a divorce attorney in “Marriage Story,” and Olivia Coleman won for best actress in a drama TV series for her role of Queen Elizabeth II in “The Crown.”
