Stocks kicked off the week on a strong note, with all three main indexes notching major gains Monday. Today's relief rally came as investors brushed off rising geopolitical tensions and instead looked ahead to a busy week on Wall Street – one which includes a number of high-profile earnings reports. 

Market participants put escalating tensions between Israel and Hamas on the backburner Monday, choosing to focus on several key domestic events on the immediate horizon. For one, there's a jam-packed earnings calendar that includes results from streaming giant Netflix (NFLX, +1.5%) and electric vehicle maker Tesla (TSLA, +1.1%).
