    The first week of August is also the last earnings-heavy week of the quarter, with a deluge of reports out each day next week. Some of the bigger names reporting results include Alibaba (BABA), Amgen (AMGN), BP (BP), Clorox (CLX), CVS Health (CVS), DraftKings (DKNG), Electronic Arts (EA), Eli Lilly (LLY), Etsy (ETSY), Lyft (LYFT), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Plug Power (PLUG), Roku (ROKU), and Uber (UBER). The economic calendar looks a bit more scant, though traders will be keeping an eye on the final Markit manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) for July, the monthly ADP employment report, trade deficit data, and a consumer credit reading for June.

    On Tuesday, August 3, factory orders, and motor vehicle sales data are on tap.  

    Wednesday, August 4 will bring the ADP employment report, the final Markit services PMI reading, and the ISM services index.
