Investors will return from a long Easter weekend to plenty of economic data this week. 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. 

Today will kick off the week with plenty of economic data for investors to unpack, including the Markit services purchasing managers' index (PMI), the ISM non-manufacturing employment report for March, the ISM non-manufacturing PMI, as well as factory orders for March.

The following company is slated to release its quarterly earnings report today, April 5:

Duck Creek Technology Inc. (NASDAQ:DCT -- $44.96) provides software-as-a-service core systems to the property and casualty insurance industry in North America. Duck Creek Technology will report its Q2 earnings of 2021 after the close today.

Looking ahead to tomorrow, the latest job openings numbers will be due out on Tuesday. All economic dates listed here are tentative and subject to change.
