TheStreet’s Jill Malandrino and Andrew Krill set your calendar up for the trading week ahead. While U.S. markets will be closed on Monday, the week ahead is packed with market moving data, earnings and conferences. Traders will look to manufacturing, housing and consumer data for a read on the broader market, including S&P/Case-Shiller, Pending Home Sales, PMI and GDP. In addition, Fed Presidents Lacker, Williams and Plosser are scheduled to speak at Stanford. The earnings calendar is relatively light, but the key names will be in housing and retail, like Toll Brothers and Michael Kors, for more clues into consumer spending and the strength of the housing market. Finally, several sell-side conferences will be taking place across multiple sectors which always lends to some good trading around headlines.
