U.S. stock indexes edged lower on Monday with Tyson Foods falling on disappointing quarterly results, while investors reassessed their predictions on when the U.S. Federal Reserve would start cutting rates. "Markets are looking ahead to a slower start ... today is a bit of a rethink on when the Fed might have to cut rates," Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley Financial said. Traders will scrutinize speeches by Fed officials this week, including Chair Jerome Powell, for any change in the central bank's dovish rhetoric after data last week showed services activity were strong in January.
