What will drive the markets this week?

U.S. stocks booked losses last week, with declines in financials pulling the Dow down while energy was the worst-performing sector in the S&P 500. The Nasdaq’s drop was attributed to the rise in bond yields which remain the main driver for financial markets.

This week investors will parse a range of economic data, including the U.S. housing sales, consumer spending, and the personal consumption expenditures (PCE) inflation index. The PCE price index, which measures inflation is used by the Federal Reserve as the main inflation index.

The real estate market in the US has been surging, driven by low mortgage rates and pandemic-induced remote work that has made it easy for people to relocate. Meanwhile, investors betting on a speedy recovery of the U.S economy should pay attention to February consumer spending data which will reflect the performance of the economy before the Biden administration’s first round of stimulus checks. While the fourth-quarter corporate earnings season has slowed down, a small number of notable companies including GameStop and Adobe are still set to report results this week.
