There will be just a sprinkling of of economic data for traders to digest throughout the week, including the Job Opening and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) and the Federal Open Market Committee's (FOMC) latest meeting minutes.There's not a whole lot to write home about earnings-wise either. Though struggling stocks Delta Air Lines (DAL) and Luckin Coffee (LK) will limp into the earnings confessional on Wednesday.

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

The week will start on a quiet note on Monday, April 6, with nothing as far as economic data. On the earnings docket, however, is LK.

It gets busier on Tuesday, April 7 with the JOLTS report and consumer credit data on tap. Meanwhile, Fluor (FLR), Levi Strauss (LEVI), and Revlon (REV) will all step into the earnings confessional.
