London (CNN Business)1. Earnings on tap: The reporting bonanza continues on Tuesday with Bank of America (BAC) and BlackRock (BLK) both set to publish earnings before the open.

Investors are particularly nervous about bank results because of worries about the health of the global economy and the uncertainty around rising interest rates in the United States.
