A host of other major corporations are also set to hold their earnings call over the next few weeks, with many looking towards the FAANG companies to surpass expectations.
Despite the potential for strong earnings growth, many still expect the Fed to hike rates by 75 basis points next week.
As of writing, all major U.S. indices were trading higher.
Another company which is set to report its quarterly numbers is Tesla, which will hold its call after tomorrow’s closing bell.
The company is expected to report revenue of $17.23 billion for Q2, which is an 8% decline from a record high in Q1.
This decline is attributed to the impact of inflation on the electric vehicle company, which CEO Elon Musk has made reference to in past months.
Musk has also made it clear that the company would be trimming its workforce in order to deal with the rising price of production.
$TSLA is trading 3.33% lower as of writing.
EURUSD rallies to 2-week high
EURUSD rose to a two week high in today’s session, as traders continued to be buoyed by the potential for an ECB rate hike.
After nearly a decade of low rates, and despite calls to act earlier, ECB President Christine Lagarde is set to finally update monetary policy in this week’s meeting.
Today’s move saw the euro climb to as high as $1.0269, which is nearly 1.2% higher than Monday’s peak.
Overall, the move is the strongest gain for the Euro since July 6th and comes following last week’s fall to parity versus the dollar.
The European Central Bank will hold its monthly meeting this coming Thursday.
