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

and the

Redbook Retail Average

, a weekly figure that examines the prior month through Saturday, are anticipated.

The

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.
