What will drive the markets this week?

US stocks closed October at new record highs after booking weekly and monthly gains, boosted by strong earnings reports, though economic data painted a more mixed picture on economic recovery, where jobless claims fell but headline inflation hit a fresh 30-year high.

The earnings season continues this week with companies from diverse sectors including energy and healthcare sectors reporting. Notable names include Marathon Oil, ConocoPhillips, and Diamondback (Energy); Ride-hailing companies Lyft & Uber; Pfizer and Moderna (healthcare).

Investors are anxiously expecting tighter Federal Reserve monetary policy as debt yield curves flatten across the globe. Many expect the Fed will announce a plan this week at the two-day Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting that begins on Tuesday – for tapering its $120 billion in monthly bond purchases. Markets will also digest economic data from across the world.
