Third-quarter earnings season kicks off in the U.S. this week, with bellwether Alcoa reporting after the market close on Wednesday.

The impact of a stronger U.S. dollar is expected to weigh on profit growth as it drives up the cost of doing business overseas. Given that the majority of companies listed on the benchmark S&P 500 depend on international markets for their revenue, the stronger currency will be a key challenge.

Thomson Reuters data show profit-growth expectations for S&P 500 companies fell to 6.4 percent from 11 percent just two months ago.

After Alcoa, PepsiCo will report Thursday and the following week will bring a raft of earnings reports from banks, pharmaceuticals, tech and others.
