US stocks edged lower while bond yields rose ahead of a big week for the market.

Investors will have to navigate Apple’s WWDC event, a Federal Reserve meeting, and multiple inflation reports this week, all of which could shake up stock prices.

The big May consumer price index report is set to be released Wednesday morning, ahead of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision. Economists expect month-over-month Core CPI to have risen 0.3% last month.

Meanwhile, the Fed meeting is expected to show no changes to interest rates, but it should offer insights into what Fed members are thinking about with regard to the path of monetary policy.

“While there’s no likelihood that there will be any change to rates, the FOMC’s quarterly Summary of Economic Projections will be watched closely for insight into the Fed’s thinking on future moves in Fed Funds,” Trade Nation senior market analyst David Morrison said.
