Summary

There will be few economic releases on the calendar in the week ahead, with Monday marking the Columbus Day holiday in the U.S.

However, investors will likely be keen to digest updates on inflation figures, with CPI data on tap for the latter part of the week.

Regional Federal Reserve chiefs will also be giving speeches at podiums scattered throughout the globe, including St. Louis Fed president James Bullard in Singapore.

Earnings season also gets underway, with big banks on tap to announce their quarterly results, including Citigroup, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo and PNC.

Interactive Brokers senior market analyst Steven Levine provides some highlights for what to look for in the week beginning October 8.
