On Tap Today: Existing-Home Sales, Leading Economic Indicators Released

Two S&P 500 companies report earnings today, and the National Association of Realtors is out with its report on existing-home sales. That's right, it should be another mellow day -- at least in terms of volume -- for the market as it moves toward the new year.

There are also a number of smaller economic releases out today.

Earnings

Countrywide Credit Industries (CCR) reports earnings before the market opens. And Shiloh Industries (SHLO), a steel processor, reports earnings after the closing bell.
