The Week Ahead

Next week is holiday shortened. The markets are closed on Monday for Martin Luther King Day.

On Wednesday, we get the Redbook retail sales numbers and ICSC data. Considering holiday sales weren't that hot, these could be very important numbers.

Thursday we get existing homes sales. I am not expecting these to be very good.

Also remember we're starting earnings season, so company specific information will probably be paramount in the market's mind.
