TheStreet's David Peltier and Andrew Krill preview the week ahead with a focus on fourth quarter earnings, the FOMC meeting and fourth quarter GDP. Apple, Google, Facebook, and Yahoo! are the big tech earnings to watch next week. Peltier says tech was one of the most over-bought sectors going into earnings but it has avoided selling off during the market's recent pullback. Krill notes analysts are expecting a $10 billion reduction in the QE program to be announced at the FOMC meeting on Wednesday.
