XHB: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
This week's calendar focuses on housing and the German economy.

No releases were scheduled for Monday, when markets were closed in observance of Presidents Day.

The German ZEW survey of economic sentiment will be released early in the morning today. Given the country's importance in Europe and its status as a major exporter, the report could sway sentiment.

The NAHB Housing Market Index follows at 10 a.m. ET. It could affect trading in homebuilders and companies that supply the industry.

Housing starts and minutes of the Federal Reserve's latest meeting will be released tomorrow, along with producer prices. Thursday brings weekly jobless claims, consumer prices, and existing home sales.

The week concludes with two more German data reports: gross domestic product and the Ifo survey of business confidence. Both will be released early in the morning before the opening bell.
