NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Good Sunday afternoon, and welcome to another edition of Weekend Reading. First a look back at the week that just finished, then a look forward to the week ahead, and, lastly, a summary of articles and research papers worth reading. It was a good week for the major markets. After touching a 17-month high, the Dow gained 0.6% on the week, while the S&P 500 added 1% and the Nasdaq rose 1.8%. Next week may be a little more uneasy, as banking and health care reform legislation come to the fore. Both will absorb some investor attention, and both are likely to reduce profits in key sectors of the economy. The week also ends with a quadruple-witching moment -- March futures and options expire -- which could make the week even more of a wild ride. Turning to economic indicators, next week will see March regional manufacturing reports, February leading economic indicators and housing starts, plus February's producer price and consumer price indices. We will also see Christopher Dodd's (D., Conn.) bill on financial regulation. > > Bull or Bear?
