Today's market-moving economic data and earnings schedule

Stocks closed the holiday-shortened week with wins for both the day on Friday and for the entire week last week. Political uncertainty in the U.S. cooled off, following U.S. President Donald Trump's statement that he would exit the White House should the Electoral College vote in President-elect Joe Biden's favor. Vaccine optimism and a boost in the retail sector as the holiday shopping season kicks off has lifted investor sentiment and refocused investors. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI - 29,910.37) added 37.9 points, while adding on 2.2% for the week. The S&P 500 Index (SPX - 3,638.35) rose 8.7 points on Friday and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC - 12,205.85) gained 111.44 points for the day on Friday. The indexes added 3.9% and 3%, respectively, last week. The Cboe Volatility Index (VIX - 20.84) fell 0.4 point on Friday, and 12% on the week last week.

Miss anything last week with the chaos of the holiday mid-week, other than the record-breaking Dow levels? Now would be a great time to subscribe to 5-Minute Market Rundown, delivered every Saturday morning. It's a great resource if you miss a few days in the market or you just want to begin prepping for the coming week. Here is a copy of our latest issue.

Investors won't get much time to breathe following the holiday shortened week last week as they will be immediately hit with a slew of data to digest as we enter peak holiday season this week. This week kicks off with home and motor vehicle data, as well as manufacturing reports today. Specifically, Chicago purchasing managers index (PMI) and pending home sales data will be released today.

No earnings were reported on Friday, likely due to the half-day that the market was open. We will kick back off earnings report schedules again today.
