CureVac surges 23% in premarket trading after deal with British drugmaker.

Good Morning Wake-Up Watchlisters! Grab the fruit-infused summer latte and check out this week’s morning premarket report. Below you’ll see indexes were flat on Wednesday after the S&P 500 closed above 5,500 for the first time ever. However, investors are concerned the rally can only last for so long, and a pullback may be imminent in the coming months.

While some investors worry about pullbacks, our Lead Technical Tactician Nate Bear knows they’re a healthy part of the markets. It’s why he uses the “post-earnings surge” pattern in Profit Surge Trader to find high probability trades that have a chance at dealing outsized returns. This patient, measured approach has led to a 79% win rate overall, including an 26.57% gain last week on MPC.
