Meanwhile, many are expecting growth to have slowed when key GDP data is released on Friday. Given that the highly-anticipated Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) policy meeting is at the end of the month, the GDP data will likely play a crucial role for the Fed, as it looks to potentially cut rates. Economists expect the U.S. economy to have grown at a 1.8% annualized rate during the second quarter, down from the 3.1% growth rate in the first quarter, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Fed officials will not be making any public comments as the next meeting approaches; however, recent comments from several policymakers have all but guaranteed an interest rate cut. The Fed fund futures are currently predicting a 77% chance of a 25 basis point cut and a 22% chance of a 50 basis point cut at the upcoming meeting.
In Washington, Robert Mueller, former special counsel, will take the hot seat in Capitol Hill. Market watchers will likely be closely monitoring his testimony in front of both the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees on Wednesday.
