The U.S. has been in its longest quarterly earnings recession since the financial crisis and the upcoming results are not expected to be positive.
According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, S&P earnings are forecast to have fallen 5.04 percent for the second quarter. The unofficial start to earnings season will take place when Alcoa posts results next Monday.

U.S. crude prices fell more than 4 percent Tuesday, but have surged more than 25 percent this year.
