The earnings calendar is relatively barren next week, with Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) serving as the headliner. Meanwhile, an array of economic reports will hit the Street -- especially on Thursday, when the producer price index (PPI), industrial production numbers, and plenty of other data could move the stock market. Separately, a pair of speeches from Fed officials earlier in the week could offer rate-hike clues, while Friday will bring the quadruple witching hour.

Below is a brief list of some key market events scheduled for the upcoming week. All earnings dates listed below are tentative and subject to change. Please check with each company's respective website for official reporting dates.
