A look at the major releases this week

Citigroup earnings are out and the earnings season is underway. Although the earnings beat expectations, revenues came in weaker than expectations. The stock is trading lower by about -1.0%.

Other financials will be released later in the week. Below is the schedule of some of the major releases this week (highligted releases are Dow 30 stocks).

US stocks are off to a weaker start this week as the US shutdown hits day 24 (the backlog of economic releases is growing with each passing day), and the China import/export data was weak.
