The U.S. Open tennis tournament begins and Starbucks (SBUX) - Get Report  will its Pumpkin Spice Latte to the menu for a few months ago.

On Wall Street, we'll get consumer confidence numbers this week and a string of retail earnings. We already heard from the likes of Tiffany (TIF) - Get Report and Best Buy (BBY) - Get Report , next we hear from Salesforce (CRM) - Get Report , among others.

Plus we get a read on the country's gross domestic product (GDP), which 4.1% during the second quarter of 2018.  That's actually the fastest GDP growth since 2014 and many will credit President Trump's tax cuts for that.
