SPX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Earnings remain the dominant theme on the calendar, with few key economic reports scheduled for today.

Chemicals giant DuPont, copper miner Freeport-McMoRan, defense contractor Lockheed-Martin, insurer Travelers, railroad Norfolk Southern, shipping giant United Parcel Service, and cigarette maker Altria all issue numbers before the opening bell. Telecom giant AT&T, credit-card lender Discover Financial, and chip makers Altera and Broadcom report in the evening.

The first economic release is the relatively unimportant FHFA house price index at 9 a.m. ET. The Richmond Federal Reserve follows one hour later with its regional activity index.

The economic agenda is even quieter tomorrow, with no releases planned. Company reports will remain active, with Caterpillar and Ford the most prominent among them.
