As it has been for the past two months, all eyes will be on the weekly jobless claims report on Thursday, as Wall Street weighs the impact the coronavirus outbreak has wrought on the U.S. economy. Investors continue to fret over the possibilities surrounding the opening of the economy in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Major earnings being announced include reports from blue-chip retailers Walmart (WMT) and Home Depot (HD), as well as Target (TGT) and chip name Nvidia (NVDA).
