Business News/ Markets / Stock Markets/  Wall Street week ahead: After US debt deal, investors’ focus on jobs data

After the deal on US debt limit, focus of investors on Wall Street next week will shift to other major economic data, including jobs report for May.

The jobs data for May will be released on June 2.

Earnings of HP, Salesforce and NetApp are also due next week.

The debt deal is expected to give much relief to stock markets, which have been on edge over the likelihood of a default for past few weeks.

US President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Saturday reached a compromise to suspend the debt limit through January 2025 and keep non-defense spending roughly flat next year, with a 1% hike in 2025. 

After this, the task of Biden government will be to get the legislation passed before a June 5 default deadline.

After the US debt deal, investors’ focus will also shift to Federal Reserve’s next monetary policy meeting in June.
