What will drive the markets this week?

Markets closed mostly lower last week in reaction to uncertainty about monetary policy from central banks, including the Federal Reserve and the impacts of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.

This week, markets will mainly be driven by the earnings seasons as major banks, including JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, and PNC, report. Other companies, including Delta Airlines, UnitedHealth, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) also report earnings.

Investors are particularly waiting to see how bank revenue and earnings have been affected by higher interest rates – higher rates tend to increase the net interest margins and profitability of financial firms. Markets will also digest a host of economic data, including the highly-anticipated Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI), retail sales data and the University of Michigan’s preliminary reading of its Consumer Sentiment Index for April.
