The central bank takes center stage for investors next week.

Federal Reserve policymakers are expected to announce their interest rate decision at the end of their two-day meeting Wednesday.

Investors are betting the Fed will cut rates by a quarter percentage point - the first rate cut in a decade.

But, With the S&P 500 already up more than 20% this year, a quarter-point cut may not be enough to expand on or sustain 2019's gains.

On Friday, the Labor Department releases its July employment report.

Economists expect payroll growth to slow to 170,000 jobs.

The unemployment rate is forecast to hold steady at 3.7%.

On the corporate front: Apple reports its third-quarter results Tuesday in a busy week for earnings.

The company had earlier signaled that iPhone sales had begun to stabilize in one of its key markets, China.

Also that day, top trade negotiators from the U.S. and China meet in Shanghai.

It'll be the first face-to-face meeting since Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping agreed in June to revive talks aimed at ending their trade war.

Fed Chair To Congress: Do These Three Things Now To Save The US Economy

The US Federal Reserve is expected to remain apolitical and stay out of the business of Congress. Even so, President Donald Trump has repeatedly jeered at Fed Chair Jerome Powell, even going so far as to call him 'an enemy of the state.' Nevertheless, Business Powell stuck his neck out in a Congressional hearing this week, calling for more government intervention in the economy.

US President Trump suspends work visas till year end

The Trump administration on Monday suspended the temporary work visas, including H-1B, for foreigners till the end of the year. It marked the latest effort to bar the entry of immigrants to the country. The new policy is "extending and expanding" on President Donald Trump's April pause on issuing new green cards, which will continue beyond the initial 60-day period until the end of the year, according to a senior administration official. "H-1B action is temporary but permanent action being taken on reforming the US visa system to one that is more "merit-based," a senior administration official told reporters at a briefing. Trump is also expected to sign an executive order on Tuesday directing new restrictions on most H-1B, H-4, H-2B, J and L visas, with some exceptions, lasting through December 31 - "frankly, because of the expanding unemployment," the official told reporters. The officials said that any abuses with H-1B visas will be investigated by the US Labor Department (USDOL). "The president has instructed us to get rid of the lottery" for such visas, the official added. The US government said that the new visa restrictions through the end of the year will affect nearly 525,000 American jobs. "We're hopeful that this is going to see broad, bipartisan support," the official said. The new restrictions, however, have been exempted for medical workers, especially those involved in COVID-19 care or research. Pegged as the COVID -19 or economic response, it is the administration's concerted effort to roll back the visas available to people overseas as a result of high unemployment in the US resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, the official noted.

If You're Out Of A Job, How Exactly Should You Go About Cutting Expenses?

The US Labor Department says forty-four million people have filed for unemployment in the past 12 weeks. If you're in the same boat, then clearly it's time to cut some expenses. But which ones, and how drastic should those cuts be? According to Business Insider, financial planner Anna N'Jie-Konte says cutting all expenses all at once during unemployment can be overwhelming. Instead, opt for cutting expenses in stages. Cut some right away. If unemployment goes beyond that, then cut more.

Speaking on India-China border tensions, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said, "I have spoken with Foreign Minister S Jaishankar a number of times about this. Chinese took incredibly aggressive actions and Indians have done their best to respond to that. There aren't many neighbours that can satisfactorily say that they know where their sovereignty ends and the Chinese Communist Party will respect that. That is certainly true now for people of Bhutan. The world must come together to respond to this. This increasing revisionist effort that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engaged in is something that President Trump has taken incredibly seriously." He further said, "World has seen true colours of Chinese Communist Party and I am convinced more than ever that free people of the world will come to understand the threat. The impact General Secy Xi Jinping has on the world is not good for free and democracy loving people."
