    While the post-Christmas week can lead to outsized moves for certain stocks -- good news for some, not so good for plenty of others -- the earnings and economic docket is bone dry. There are no notable earnings reports to be seen throughout the entire week, while Tuesday and Thursday are the busiest days for economic data. As such, trading volumes may be light, as investors prepare for the new year. 

    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.

    Markets will be closed on Monday, Dec. 26 in observance of Christmas. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller home price index and the Conference Board's consumer confidence survey will be released on Tuesday, Dec. 27, along with the Dallas Fed manufacturing survey. 

    Pending home sales make up the economic docket on Wednesday, Dec. 28, while Thursday, Dec. 29 will feature weekly jobless claims, international trade data, and the holiday-delayed update on domestic crude inventories. The Chicago purchasing managers index (PMI) comes out on Friday, Dec. 30.
