What’s Happening This Week?

Last week, the bank earnings painted a very healthy picture of the U.S. economy with JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, and Bank of AMerica topping expectations. After such a strong first week, we have a slew of tech earnings from the likes of Netflix, Tesla, Philips, Intel, and IBM, which will help us understand how the electronics industry is faring with a shortage of microchips.

In terms of events, we have the crucial core inflation number from the U.K., from which we expect prices to climb 3.2% YoY, 0.4% MoM, and a climb of 2.9% of core CPI. We also have flash PMIs from the U.S, U.K., Eurozone, and Germany.
