At the beginning of the week, the main US stock markets declined slightly due to the losses in the healthcare sector and the conglomerate sector and in anticipation of the season reports for the third quarter.

The unofficial start of the season of US companies' reports will occur with the publication of financial results of several major financial institutions: Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo. According to Reuters, the profits of companies in the S & P 500 index basket will show an increase of 4.2% compared to the same period last year, after exceeding the expectations of growth of 12.3% y / y in the second quarter.

The next day the market grew slightly, responding to the IMF's improved forecasts for world economic growth and US GDP for 2017 and 2018. According to the IMF, the global economic recovery intensified and is wide-ranging, but it remains incomplete. The growth forecast for this year was raised to 3.6% from 3.5%, and by 2018 - to 3.7% from 3.6%.

On Wednesday, the indices finished trading in the "green zone". Moderate gains in the conglomerate sector and technological sector were offset by the fall of the industrial goods sector. In addition, some influence on the dynamics of trading was provided by the data for the US and the protocol of the September meeting of the FOMC. A survey of vacancies and labor turnover, published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, showed that in August the number of vacancies decreased to 6.082 million. The indicator for July was revised to 6.14 million from 6.17 million. Analysts expected that the number of vacancies will decrease to 6,125 million. The vacancy rate was 4.0%, unchanged from July. The number of vacancies In addition, hiring amounted to 5.430 million against 5.521 million in July. The level of hiring fell by 0.1%, to 3.7%. According to the minutes of the September FOMC meeting, most of the Fed leaders expected another rate hike this year, although some said their decision will depend on whether inflation will increase in the coming months. Many leaders of the Fed think that the weakness of inflation will be short.

On Thursday, the trades moved to the negative zone. Little support for the market was provided by data on the United States. As it became known, the number of Americans applying for new unemployment benefits fell during the second consecutive week in early October, although recent hurricanes continued to affect data in the South of the United States. Primary applications for unemployment benefits decreased by 15,000 to 243,000, seasonally adjusted for the week to October 7, the Ministry of Labor said. Economists were expecting 251,000 applications.

The week ended with a slight increase, thanks to a rise in the price of thr shares of Apple and other technology companies. In addition, the focus was on the US. As it became known today, the consumer price index in September rose by 0.5%, noting the biggest increase in 8 months. Economists predicted the increase of 0.6%. With the exception of food and energy, the basic consumer price index rose by 0.1%. Meanwhile, retail sales in the US increased by 1.6% in September, reflecting the largest increase in 2.5 years.
