XLF: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Today's economic calendar is uneventful, with little market-moving data scheduled.

The only U.S. reports on tap involve home mortgages and oil inventories. The Mortgage Bankers Association will release its weekly applications data at 7 a.m. ET, while the Energy Department will announce crude-oil supply levels at 10:30 a.m. ET. Neither is likely to have a big impact on sentiment.

In the overnight session, the Eurozone will release quarterly gross domestic product and Germany will report industrial production. Those headlines could affect risk appetite.
