Investing.com - The markets are still closely watching the latest developments in this conflict, as well as the international reaction. On Tuesday, US President Joe Biden is expected to make an appearance.

Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (ECB), is also due to speak.

Cryptocurrencies rise this morning.

Brent crude oil rises this morning.

Here are the five factors investors should consider when making their decisions today:

1. Russia-Ukraine; Joe Biden's speech

The experts continue to recommend great caution when it comes to investing these days, as the news coming out of Russia-Ukraine will be decisive for the behaviour of the financial markets.

Russia continues to tighten the noose and an appearance by US President Joe Biden is scheduled for Tuesday.

So far, a battery of economic and financial sanctions has been imposed on Russia, which is causing a collapse in some sectors.

2. Lagarde (ECB)

At 15:00 local time, Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (ECB), is scheduled to speak.

We will be watching to see if she says anything about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the economic outlook.

3. Crypto on the rise

The cryptocurrency sector, which is increasingly linked to the stock market, is closely following the latest news about Russia-Ukraine. Bitcoin is trading at $43,000 and Ethereum at $2,800.

4. Asia and the American stock market

The main Asian indices are mixed today. Nikkei is up 1.2%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng lost 0.1% and the Shanghai Composite gained 0.4%.

On Wall Street, the market also ended yesterday mixed. The S&P 500 (-0.2%), Nasdaq (+0.4%) and Dow Jones (-0.4%) closed lower.

5. Macroeconomic data

The main macroeconomic releases include the manufacturing PMI in Spain, Italy , France , Germany , UK and the Euro zone , as well as the CP I in Italy and Germany , and the retail sales in Germany.

In the US, we will see the Redbook retail sales index and weekly API crude oil stocks.
