Tomorrow's agenda also includes monthly retail sales, Germany's Zew survey of economic sentiment, and the New York Federal Reserve's Empire manufacturing index. Chinese economic-growth and industrial-production numbers are released in the evening.
Wednesday morning features quarterly results from Bank of America, PNC Financial, U.S. Bancorp, and Abbott Laboratories. Mortgage applications, the NAHB housing-market index and the Fed's Beige Book survey of economic conditions come out as well. eBay, Yum Brands, and SanDisk report in the afternoon.
Thursday brings jobless claims, housing starts, building permits and the Philadelphia Fed's regional activity index. Morgan Stanley, UnitedHealth, Mattel, Baxter, Danaher, Philip Morris, and Taiwan Semiconductor report in the morning. Google, IBM, Seagate Technologies, and Capital follow after the closing bell.
