There are few events on today's calendar, but activity picks up tomorrow.
Germany's Zew survey of financial sentiment and Eurozone industrial production will both be released early in the morning. The only U.S. data report, export and import prices at 8:30 a.m. ET, is unlikely to sway sentiment.
Tomorrow brings gross domestic-product numbers from European nations, U.S. producer prices, the NAHD homebuilder sentiment report, and the New York Federal Reserve's regional Empire manufacturing index. Deere and Computer Sciences also report earnings before the opening bell.
Thursday features initial jobless claims, housing starts, and building permits, plus quarterly results from Wal-Mart Stores.
