SPX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Today's economic calendar remains light, with corporate earnings likely to matter more than macro data.

Industrial conglomerate 3M and chemicals giant DuPont, both members of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, will issue results before the bell. Social-media giant Facebook and network-technology stalwart Juniper Networks follow in the afternoon.

The only economic data will be the Richmond Fed's monthly index of economic activity in its district. Scheduled for 10 a.m. ET, the report generally covers too limited an area to have a significant impact on broad sentiment.

The calendar picks up tomorrow, with key European data scheduled for the early morning and the Federal Reserve's interest-rate decision in the afternoon.
