Trading Radar: Earning Season Kicks Off With Alcoa

Economics, earnings reports, and market events for the week ahead.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL

Earnings season kicks off in the US with Alcoa (AA) on Monday. While the rest of the week is relatively light, important names like JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Google (GOOG) will also report. JPMorgan's earnings will be interesting, as it will publicly disclose with analysts what losses it took on the London Chief Investment Office's "Whale Trades." Initial estimates put the losses at $2 billion to $4 billion.

After a fourth straight nonfarms payroll report that did not show meaningful growth, growth in Consumer Credit on Monday will be helpful to keep stock markets from continuing to tumble further. However, initial jobless claims have begun trending lower, a potentially promising sign.

In the European political theater, Monday's monthly finance minister meeting in Brussels could bring a political agreement on the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and reduce uncertainty on the bailout terms for Spain. Last Friday's European summit provided plans of a bank recapitalization plan and progress on a bailout for Spain.
