There are no important data points on the calendar for today, which is a shortened trading session because of Thanksgiving yesterday.
The only economic news comes from Germany in the overnight session, with quarterly gross domestic product and the Ifo survey of business confidence. Those reports could potentially impact sentiment.
Most attention will probably focus on consumer spending in the United States. Stock trading will end at 1 p.m. ET, three hours earlier than normal.
