Generally, the meeting of the US Federal Reserve gives the picture of how the broader economy might perform moving forward and what is the economy’s current state. It can be assumed that, in the present scenario, the primary concern in the minds of the global market players is the trade tensions between the United States and China.

Now, the US companies would start reporting their earnings and it is advisable that the investors should track the same. Generally, the management of the companies provide a detailed outlook on how the geopolitical and macro-economic conditions could influence their key performance metrics. Therefore, the tracking of the earnings season could give the investors a broader picture of how a particular company might perform.

The Blackstone Group is expected to be out with its earnings on July 18, 2019 while its peers like The Carlyle Group and Apollo Global Management are expected to release their earnings on August 7, 2019 and August 1, 2019, respectively.

It can be assumed that, moving forward, the earnings season could be the primary focus area and the broader movement of the markets might be dependent on the earnings of the companies. Therefore, the market players should track the earnings season.
