Mortgage-application data will be announced at 7 a.m. ET, which could sway sentiment among homebuilders. Energy companies may be active when crude-oil inventories are released at 10:30 a.m. ET. Both reports, however, are based on weekly numbers and seldom cause big price moves.

Germany will also release industrial production numbers early in the session.

Companies including Beam, Dendreon, Dean Foods, Foster Wheeler, Stratasys, and T-Mobile will report earnings before the opening bell. Nvidia, Priceline.com, Monster Beverage, Assured Guaranty, Allscripts Healthcare, and Emulex follow in the afternoon.
