With earnings season all but over, all eyes will be on next week's batch of economic data ahead of the September Fed meeting. And while expectations are low that the central bank will pull the trigger on a rate hike this time around, inflation data in the form of the producer price index (PPI) and consumer price index (CPI) will likely draw increased scrutiny. Retail stocks will also be in the spotlight, with monthly sales data due on Friday.

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.

The economic and earnings calendars are bare on Monday, Sept. 11. The Labor Department's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) is the lone economic report on Tuesday, Sept. 12, while the earnings docket is empty.

The PPI and weekly crude inventories update will be released on Wednesday, Sept. 13, along with the Treasury budget. United Natural Foods (UNFI) will take its late-season turn in the earnings confessional.

Inflation data continues to roll in on Thursday, Sept. 14, with the release of the CPI. Weekly jobless claims are also due. Oracle (ORCL) will report earnings.
Quadruple witching expiration hits the Street on Friday, Sept. 15, when futures and options on indexes and stocks simultaneously expire. Retail sales and industrial production are also on tap, as is the Empire State manufacturing survey, business inventories, and the University of Michigan consumer sentiment survey. There are no earnings reports of note.
