On the earnings side of things, the season of quarterly reports is well underway.

The Chicago purchasing managers' index (PMI) is due out on Monday, Jan. 31.

Tuesday, Feb. 1 features the Markit manufacturing PMI, and the ISM manufacturing index. In addition, job openings and job quits data is on tap, as well as construction spending.
