Week Ahead: January 13 – January 19, 2019

Earnings season kicks off this week with the big banks reporting earnings. With the current level of rates, it will be interesting to see how earrings are faring and if the banks have been able to make up NIM with loan growth. We will be keeping a close eye on geopolitics this week as tensions with Iran continue along with the supposed signing of the Phase 1 trade deal with China. Once details are released, we would expect the market to react; direction will depend on the details. The economic front will also give us reading on inflation. Both CPI and PPI will be released and with the current economic strength coming for the consumer these number will be important.
