Attention will be focused on jobs inflation data next week. It's safe to say another eventful earnings season has come and gone as well, though several names will be scattered throughout the week, including reports from Reddit darling AMC Entertainment (AMC), Campbell Soup (CPB), Cloudera (CLDR), Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), (JD), Stitch Fix (SFIX), Ulta Beauty (ULTA), and Wheaton Precious Metals (WPM). The Federal Budget Balance will also capture trader's attention, slated for release next Wednesday, March 10.

Tuesday, Mar. 9, will bring the NFIB small-business index, as well as the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) short-term energy outlook.

Wednesday, Mar. 10, will pick up slightly, with the CPI and core CPI for February both due out. Later in the day, the most recent Federal budget balance will be released.
