Investing.com - Here’s a preview of the top 3 things that could rock markets tomorrow.
1. CPI Numbers on Tap
Retail inflation data leads tomorrow’s economic calendar after a government report showed today a surprise drop in wholesale prices for last month.
The Labor Department will release the consumer price index (CPI) at 8:30 AM ET (12:30 GMT).
In addition, central bank watchers will also get decisions from the Bank of England and the European Central Bank.
The BoE is widely expected to keep rates unchanged when it announces its decision at 7:00 AM ET (11:00 GMT). The ECB is also expected to hold. Its decision comes out at 7:45 AM ET (11:45 GMT).
2. Kroger, Adobe Set to Report
Analysts are forecasting a profit of 37 cents per share on sales of about $28 billion.
The numbers will have to be strong to impress Wall Street, with the stock up solidly over the last three months and close to a 52-week high.
Analysts predict a profit of $1.68 per share, on revenue of $2.25 billion.
Adobe shares are close to its all-time high.
3. Hurricane Florence Approaches East Coast
Energy and stock investors will be watching for updates as Hurricane Florence heads towards landfall.
The hurricane is expected to deliver tropical storm winds to the Carolinas starting 12:00 PM ET (16:00 GMT) tomorrow and hurricane-force winds by late that evening, according to CNN.
President Donald Trump has warned those in the path of the hurricane to evacuate.
The storm’s path is not taking it toward the oil production facilities in the Gulf of Mexico. But it is expected to deliver one of the strongest blows to the East Coast in years.
Energy, insurance, materials and industrials stocks are often actively traded during natural disasters.
