U.S. stocks closed higher on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average rising over 300 points. U.S. Treasury yields declined. The market is closely watching the important Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation data to be released on Wednesday, as well as the upcoming second-quarter earnings reports. 

U.S. Stocks 

Fundamental Analysis: 

The second-quarter earnings season for U.S. stocks will kick off this week. Some “systemically important financial institutions” will release their earnings reports this week, including JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and BlackRock. Other important companies that will report their earnings include PepsiCo, Delta Air Lines, and more. 

The six major U.S. technology giants account for over 50% of the weighting in the Nasdaq 100, and adjustments are imminent.
