U.S. employers added jobs in July at about the same pace as in June, when they took on another 195,000 workers, data in the coming week are likely to show.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke and fellow policy makers probably will vote to continue the central bank’s record level of bond buying, and may wait until September to trim the monthly amount from $85 billion. The European Central Bank is likely to leave its benchmark rate at a record low of 0.5 percent. ECB President Mario Draghi will give a news conference.
Exxon Mobil Corp., Berkshire Hathaway Inc., Deutsche Bank AG, Barclays Plc, Toyota Motor Corp., Volkswagen AG and Procter & Gamble Co. will be among companies releasing results.
