Earnings Season kicks off for Canada's Banks on Wednesday with the Bank of Montreal (BMO). On Thursday  Royal Bank, TD Bank and CIBC  all report. Scotiabank will report May 30. Investors will be looking at four things, how much the banks have benefited  from rising U.S. interest rates, the credit situation from the oilpatch and the housing market and consumer debt pressures.

This follows ratings agency Moody's having downgraded the credit ratings for Canada's major banks earlier this month. They cited the vulnerability of lenders to potential losses to the high house prices. There is much angst with the Canadian mortgage market, the forward guidance is critical for investor confidence from the banks.
