JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup will also provide updates.

The minutes from the Fed's last meeting will be released on Wednesday and will provide a further glimpse into the central bank's thinking about why they didn't raise rates in September and what they will be looking at when considering future hikes.

We'll get a peek into the strength of the consumer with sentiment data and retail sales.
