David Russell | email@example.com
Germany's Ifo survey of economic sentiment is the only event on today's economic calendar. It will be released early in the morning and may impact macro sentiment toward equities.
Next week's agenda offers a broad array of data. The Chicago Federal Reserve will release its regional economic activity index on Monday. Tuesday brings durable goods orders, the Case-Shiller home price index, new home sales and consumer confidence.
Pending home sales follow on Wednesday. On Thursday, the Labor Department will release weekly jobless claims and the Chicago Purchasing Managers Index will be released. The final calculation of fourth-quarter GDP will also be announced.
The week concludes with the University of Michigan's survey of consumer sentiment on Friday morning.
