A confluence of catalysts could move the market in the coming week, including the Democratic National Convention. Analysts hope a terror-free week in Boston can help cure the market's recent bout of paranoia. Another slew of earnings and some big economic reports, including the advanced reading of second-quarter gross domestic product, will keep investors busy. But it's what's going on outside the market that will continue to set the tone. "We have outside forces that seem to be controlling what investors do," said Bernadette Murphy, chief market analyst at Kimelman & Baird. "The concern seems to be that there was a slowdown in the recovery in June. ... That's part of why the market is shivering." Along with usual concerns about oil and Iraq, Murphy thinks investors are worried about possible terrorist attacks at three major upcoming events -- the first being the Democratic National Convention, which starts in Boston on Monday and lasts through Thursday. "The review of 9/11 has heightened sensitivity. It's dominating the market," Murphy said. As a result, the sharp declines of the broader indices don't "seem to have anything to do with earnings or the economy." If no terrorism-related events occur at the DNC, Murphy said, terrorism fears will move toward the Olympics in Greece, which begin Aug. 13, and then toward the Republican National Convention in New York, beginning Aug. 30. Cary Nordan, a fund manager at BB&T Asset Management, acknowledged the terrorism concerns but said an attack at the DNC is unlikely. As a result, he thinks the market will bounce nicely. "Getting through next week in general is going to prove some relief," he said, also partly because July will be over. "The market has taken on a lot of water in the month of July, so I don't expect August to do a lot of damage."
