CEOs from some of the biggest companies in the U.S., including Snap and Merck and Google, are gathering at the annual DealBook conference in New York.

The conference comes after U.S. equities wrapped up a wild and volatile October, with the S&P 500 registering its biggest monthly loss since September 2011.

Worries about rising interest rates and global trade, as well as concern over a slowdown in corporate earnings growth, contributed to last month's volatility spike. Investors and companies also face an active November with midterm elections, a Federal Reserve meeting and an expected meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the upcoming G-20 summit.
