Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The partial U.S. government shutdown may enter a second week unless President Barack Obama and House Republican leaders can find a resolution, with financial markets paying attention to the possibility the U.S. may breach its $16.7 trillion debt limit in mid-October.

The International Monetary Fund and World Bank will hold their annual meetings in Washington, drawing central bank governors, finance ministers and banking executives.

JPMorgan Chase & Co., Alcoa Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. will be among the first companies to release third-quarter results.

Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum leaders will hold their annual summit in Bali, Indonesia.

Winners of the Nobel prizes will be announced.
