Three weekly economic indicators due this day after the 4th, and they remind of last night's fireworks: They're timely, volatile and generally cover only a spurt of time.
Two spending indicators (and therefore potential market movers) respectively track retail chains and department stores. The
BTM Weekly U.S. Retail Chain Store Sales Index
Redbook Retail Average
, a weekly figure that examines the prior month through Saturday, are anticipated.
Consumer Comfort Index
comes hours after the closing bell and so will have as little market influence as the monthly
leading economic indicators
appearing today -- although designed to predict economic activity during the first half of next year, many of the 10 indices are already public.
