Stocks rose as investors prepare for a week of market movers.
The next FOMC meeting this Wednesday is expected to keep interest rates at current levels.
Investors are also awaiting the Treasury’s refunding plan, the next jobs report, and Apple’s earnings.

US stocks rose Monday morning as investors readied for a big week of potentially market moving updates.

The uptick to start the week offers up a reprieve from earlier losses after the S&P 500 slid into correction territory at the end of last week. 

Top of mind for investors is the Federal Reserve’s meeting, kicking off on Tuesday and concluding with Wednesday’s decision on interest rates. The central bank is largely expected to pause rate hikes and keep the fed funds rate at the current range of 5.25%-5.50%.

October’s jobs report will follow on Friday, giving insight into whether last month’s labor market strength has persisted. US employers are expected to have added 1750,000 jobs in October, compared to 336,000 in September. 

Meanwhile, Wall Street is also focused on the Treasury’s quarterly borrowing announcement, in which the Department will lay out plans for additional bond issuance. Investors are largely expecting the government to increase the size of Treasury auctions, potentially pressuring bond prices and moving yields higher.

Already, long-duration bond rates have hit their highest level in 16 years, with the 30-year Treasury now trading above 5%. The 10-year Treasury bond hit 5% for the first time since 2007 this month. The benchmark bond was trading at 4.901% Monday, up about five basis points. 

Investors are also gearing up for Apple’s earnings report on Thursday. Big Tech earning performance has been a mixed bag this season, with Google and Tesla failing to meet expectations.

Here’s where US indexes stood at the 9:30 a.m. opening bell on Monday: 

S&P 500: 4,147.95, up 0.74% Dow Jones Industrial Average: 32,707.55, up 0.88% (+283.83 points)Nasdaq Composite: 12,724.45, up 0.64%
