A fresh round of Federal Reserve appearances is due this week, including Fed Governor Jerome Powell -- who is set to deliver a keynote address on Thursday. This follows Wednesday's release of the closely watched Fed meeting minutes, where traders will be looking for clues on a possible December rate hike. Plus, third-quarter earnings season will unofficially begin with several notable names set to report, including high-profile financial firms JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE:JPM) and Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE:WFC), as well as travel name Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL).
