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.
