Summary

The week ahead will provide some critical economic figures, as investors eye the Fed’s December meeting and the potential for a fourth rate hike this year.

Data on the calendar is set to include personal income and spending, ISM manufacturing, as well as the Bureau of Labor Statistics' employment report for October.

Investors will also receive motor vehicle sales, amid an auto industry that has recently been beset by a long list of headwinds, including global trade disputes and rising commodity prices.

Meanwhile, earnings season rolls forward, with another long list of companies in the queue, including Coca-Cola, Pfizer, eBay, Facebook, Aetna, Apple, US Steel, and Starbucks.

Interactive Brokers senior market analyst Steven Levine provides some highlights for what to look for in the week beginning October 29.
