In a very busy week on the economic front, more data hit the Street today.

This morning the

Chicago Purchasing Managers' Index, which measures factory sector expansion, is released. Along with the

Philadelphia Fed Index, the CPMI is considered a good gauge of what to expect from the

Purchasing Managers' Index, which comes out on Friday.
