Traders won't have much in the way of earnings and economic data to influence their decisions Monday, so the market could end up being driven by pure emotion.

Thus far in 2008, the mood has been decidedly negative, including a drubbing on Friday in which the

Dow Jones Industrial Average

slumped more than 250 points and the

Nasdaq

plummeted nearly 4%.

The earnings calendar will soon be very crowded, but for now it's light. To start next week,

Schnitzer Steel

(SCHN) - Get Report

,

Immucor

( BLUD),

Lawson Software

( LWSN) and

Qmed

(QMED)

are expected.

No economic reports are scheduled for release.

, however, will be anything but quiet. Gary Krakow will be in Las Vegas providing coverage of the Consumer Electronics Show, and Liz Rappaport will preview what the week holds for Wall Street.

Also, Nicholas Yulico will take another look at

American Capital Strategies

(ACAS)
