Walmart looks to India for supplies

Hello, I'm Angelina Ong, and welcome to beat the street, the show that gives you all the tradeable news and data ahead of the Wall Street Open.

Coming up: investors await the latest inflation data ahead of Federal Reserve (Fed) chair Jerome Powell's speech, and oil inches higher as energy traders eye the outcome of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries Plus (OPEC+) meeting.
