Tuesday’s Factors and Events
The data put pressure on global equities, which broke off from last week’s rally on Monday. Equities stateside kicked off 2019 with strong gains, rebounding from a sell-off last month that briefly pushed the S&P 500 index into bear market territory.
Meanwhile, earnings season is in full swing, with investors keenly watching out for results from Wall Street titans J.P. Morgan and Wells Fargo for clues as to how they fared during last month’s market volatility. Citigroup was the first major U.S. bank to report revenues on Monday, posting fourth-quarter profitthat beat analyst expectations — still, its fixed-income revenue fell 21 percent from the previous year as trading conditions deteriorated.
