Investing.com -- Stocks gave up their gains, heading lower with minutes left in the trading session on Monday.
Investors were cheered earlier by JPMorgan's (NYSE:JPM) deal to step in and buy the deposits and most of the assets of First Republic, capping a tense weekend as the market waited for regulators to announce a solution for the lender.
The deal is expected to calm remaining fears about the state of the banking system, but that isn't seen keeping the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates when it meets starting tomorrow. The rate decision, and a press conference by Chair Jerome Powell, are expected on Wednesday.
Markets expect the Fed will raise rates another quarter of a percentage point, but where the Fed goes after that is still a trickier question to answer. Many believe the Fed will pause in June as it assesses the effect of its rate increases thus far, amid signs of a cooling economy. The bank turmoil in March, which spilled over to First Republic, is also expected to tighten lending, and that could toss additional cool water on the economy.
Here are three things that could affect markets tomorrow:
1. Job openings
The JOLTS job openings report from the government is expected out at 10:00 ET. Analysts expect the March reading to dip to 9.775 million from 9.931M a month earlier.
2. Pfizer earnings
Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc (NYSE:PFE) is expected to report earnings of 98 cents a share on profit of $16.6 billion, and analysts will be listening to what it says about drug pipeline development as revenue from COVID-related treatments falls.
3. AMD earnings
Advanced Micro Devices Inc (NASDAQ:AMD) is expected to report earnings per share of 56 cents on revenue of $5.3B.
