What will drive the markets this week?

Last week, most global equities ended in the reds with most of the major indices around the world ending in weekly losses. Stocks in the US fell to two-month lows after closing lower on Friday. Warnings from FedEx on an impending global slowdown were a major influencer in the downtrend in US equities.

In Europe and Asia, markets also traded lower amid economic growth fears, growing expectations of hawkish moves by the Federal Reserve, and continued volatility in the energy market.

Monetary policy will be in the spotlight this week, as global central banks including the U.S. Federal Reserve, Bank of England (BoE), and Bank of Japan (BoJ) are expected to conduct monetary policy meetings, with interest rate decisions expected.

August housing starts and building permits will also be released, along with existing home sales, providing further updates on the U.S. housing market. S&P Global will release the flash estimate of its Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) for the U.S. and eurozone on Friday, gauging the recent performance of the manufacturing and services sectors across both economies. Earnings reports will come from AutoZone, General Mills, Trip.com, Costco, Accenture, FedEx, and Darden Restaurants, among others.
