This last full week of June will bring plenty of economic data. Investors will be listening to updates from several Presidents of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) throughout this week, especially after the recent Fed decision sent stocks spiraling. Meanwhile, there will be a handful of notable quarterly reports to unpack, including CarMax (KMX), Darden Restaurants (DRI), FedEx (FDX), and Nike (NKE), throughout this week. 

No economic data is scheduled to be released today after a wild triple-witching Friday to close out last week. Amazon Prime Day will kick off today, kicking off promotions for other big box retailers, too.
