Today, the first day of April, will bring a bevy of economic data with it, including initial and continuous jobless claims, the Markit manufacturing PMI, the ISM manufacturing index, data on construction spending, and motor vehicles sales. 

The following company is slated to release its quarterly earnings report today, April 1:

CarMax Inc. (NYSE:KMX -- $145.61) operates as a retailer of used vehicles in the United States. CarMax will report its Q4 earnings of 2020 before the bell today.

Please note that the U.S. stock markets will be closed for the full trading day on tomorrow in observance of Good Friday. The trading week will close out today at 4:00 p.m. ET and trading will resume again on Monday, April 5, at 9:30 a.m. ET.

Looking ahead to next week, investors will return from a long Easter weekend to plenty of economic data. Data on factory orders, consumer credit, the trade deficit, and job openings could potentially move markets throughout the week, while traders' focus will also be directed toward the Federal Open Market Committee's (FOMC) meeting minutes on Wednesday. The earnings calendar, meanwhile, is nearly bare, though, Conagra (CAG), Constellation Brands (STZ), JinkoSolar (JKS) and Levi Strauss (LEVI) will all make appearances in the earnings confessional. 

All economic dates listed here are tentative and subject to change.
