Investors remained cautious ahead of what will be closely watched inflation data later in the week as well as the start of third quarter earnings season on Friday, when the largest U.S. lenders are due to report.
Analysts expect the bank results to show a slide in net income after market volatility hit investment banking activity and lenders set aside more rainy-day funds to cover losses from borrowers who fall behind on their payments.
Banks typically earn more when interest rates rise because they can charge customers more to borrow, but higher borrowing costs also impact on demand for mortgages and other loans.
The U.S. is to release the consumer price index report for September on Thursday followed by retail sales figures, also for last month, on Friday.
