SPX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
This week's events calendar begins slowly, building to pivotal employment data on Friday. There are no major economic reports today.

German and Eurozone manufacturing numbers will be released early tomorrow morning, followed by the Institute of Supply Management's service-sector report at 10 a.m. ET.

The labor news begins on Wednesday with ADP's private sector report. Later that day investors will get factory orders and the Federal Reserve's Beige Book report.

Thursday features German manufacturers orders, February same-store sales for U.S. retailers, and weekly jobless claims. Japanese gross domestic product follows in the overnight session.

Monthly non-farm payrolls and unemployment data will be reported on Friday morning, one hour before the market opens.
