Alcoa used to kick off earnings season, giving investors insight into the health of the economy. As of September, Alcoa is no longer a member of the Dow Index and its earnings have lost their importance to the larger market.

The banks will give a better indication of how the economy is faring with regards to consumers, better than an industrial company.
