The week ahead: focus on US fiscal stimulus, macro data and Tech earnings (Square, Nvidia, Salesforce.com, etc.)

Read the key events to monitor for the week which starts on February 22, 2021.  


In the week ahead, investors will continue to focus on U.S stimulus talks and economic data to gauge whether the reflation trade has further room to go. That so-called reflation trade sent the 10-year Treasury yield to its highest level in a year and has helped value stocks to outperform growth stocks. On the monetary front, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell speaks Tuesday and Wednesday before the Senate Finance Committee and House Financial Services Committee.
