May is approaching its end, and as we head into the second half of the year, investors still have a deluge of economic data and earnings releases to parse through. Though there's a couple bare days ahead, the sessions where economic data is scheduled are absolutely packed. Due out is the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller home-price index, more initial and continuing jobless claims data, and highly anticipated core inflation data. Earnings are still pouring in too, featuring reports from  AutoZone (AZO), Costco (COST), Dell (DELL), Dollar General (DG), Dollar Tree (DLTR), and NVIDIA (NVDA).

Below is a list of key market events scheduled for the upcoming week. All economic dates listed below are tentative and subject to change.

A slow start to the week, Monday, May 24 is free of any economic data.

On Tuesday, May 25, things pick up a bit, with the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller home-price index, as well as the consumer confidence index, and new home sales.

There's nothing of note on the slate for Wednesday, May 26.

Thursday, May 27 comes with more initial and continuing jobless claims data. In addition, a gross domestic product (GDP) reading is due out, as are durable goods orders, nondefense capital goods, and the pending home sales index.

A jam-packed close to the week, Friday, May 28 features personal income, consumer spending, and core inflation data. An advance report on trade in goods deficit, the Chicago purchasing managers' index (PMI), and the consumer sentiment index are on the docket too.
