What will drive the markets this week?

Global equities closed lower last week as markets remained volatile, with the VIX volatility index, a popular measure of the stock market’s expectation of volatility based on S&P 500 index options, climbing over 50% last week as markets reacted to disappointing earnings from big tech firms, interest rate hikes and rising inflation.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq dropped into correction territory, falling over 10% from its most recent high while the Dow and S&P 500 closed out the week lower, in the third straight week of losses.

The earnings season continues this week with major companies, including IBM, Logitech, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, Raytheon Technologies, American Express, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Tesla, Intel, AT&T, Boeing, Apple, Visa, Mastercard, Comcast, McDonald’s Corporation, Blackstone, Northrop Grumman, Chevron, Caterpillar, Colgate-Palmolive, and Phillips 66, among others reporting. In monetary policy, the Federal Reserve will hold its first Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting for the year and analysts expect the Fed to confirm its move to hike interest rates in response to rising inflation.

Investors will also parse economic data, economic sentiments, and Manufacturing Indexes from across the world.
