EWG: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
The economic calendar remains relatively quiet today, with European data potentially the biggest potential catalyst.

Germany is scheduled to report the month-over-month change in industrial production. Given its position as a major exporter and the biggest economy in Europe, the news could sway sentiment toward the broader market. It will be announced at 6 a.m. ET.

In the United States, the Mortgage Bankers Association releases loan-application numbers at 7 a.m. ET, followed by the change in crude-oil inventories at 10:30 a.m. ET. Both are regular weekly reports.

Tomorrow's schedule is more active as retailers report monthly same-store sales and the Labor Department announces weekly jobless claims.
