CPI, FOMC MINUTES ON THE DOCKET FOLLOWED BY CORPORATE EARNINGS
This week’s economic calendar begins to shift the focus towards corporate earnings out of the United States. On Thursday, both Delta and Blackrock announce Q1 performance numbers, and this is followed by the Friday release of the same from Citigroup, JP Morgan and Wells Fargo. Earnings season runs through the rest of April, and many of the big tech names are reporting later in the month. Netflix reports results next Monday, April 16th, Facebook reports on April 25th, Google and Amazon both report on April 26th, and Apple announces on May 1st.
But before we get deeper into earnings, we have a couple of key macro drivers to work with on this week’s economic calendar, as Wednesday brings the release of March inflation numbers out of the United States along with meeting minutes from the Fed’s March rate hike later in the day. The next morning brings ECB meeting minutes from the March rate decision, but expectations here are relatively low for any ‘new’ themes or items of interest.
