Halloween is on its way and Wall Street has been nervous.  There's been a lot for investors to digest.  Earnings season continues to roll on and in this episode, we update you on some of last week's headline makers.  We also look ahead to this week, when the likes of Apple and Google are set to release their results.

Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve remains in view.  There's little chance the Fed is going to raise interest rates ahead of the presidential election.  But the odds remain high that a rate hike is on the way in December.  We'll peak in on the latest from the Fed and see what to expect on that front.

And of course, the presidential campaign is coming into its final stretch.  There hasn't been much of direct impact on the market.  But the possiblity of a messy election is hanging over Wall Street.  Also, there's now doubts about how the Congressional elections are likely to turn out, adding to the uncertainty.
