Before you get started with your day, take a minute to check out Investors’s morning market briefing. The site puts together a comprehensive list of everything new in the markets around the opening bell and is a great way for investors to get primed for the day.
Here are some highlights:
Stock futures traded unevenly higher early Tuesday as the major indexes again set their sites on new highs ahead of Wednesday’s Fed policy announcement.
Apple (AAPL) edged up 0.2%, despite some negative news about iPhone 8 demand. Amazon.com (AMZN) led the FANG stock group, up 0.4% and possibly buoyed by an announcement from Kohl’s (KSS) that a limited number of its stores would begin accepting and processing free returns for Amazon customers beginning in October.
The Federal Open Market Committee begins its two-day meeting in Washington D.C., with a policy announcement and press conference with Fed Chair Janet Yellen scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Real estate-sector stocks will receive some early input at 8:30 a.m. ET, when the Commerce Department releases August housing starts numbers. Commerce also releases second-quarter current account balance numbers at 8:30, and the Labor Department delivers August import/export price data.
