Today's market-moving economic data and earnings schedule

A few key events will keep Wall Street on their toes this week. The S&P Global (Markit) services purchasing managers' index (PMI) will be due out on Tuesday, hinting at the U.S. economy's health. Just one day later, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will release its meeting minutes, giving investors even more clues as to when the next rate hike may be coming, amid the central bank's increasingly hawkish stance. 

The earnings slate is nearly bare this week, though Acuity Brands (AYI), Conagra (CAG), Constellation Brands (STZ), Levi Strauss (LEVI), SMART Global (SGH), and WD-40 (WDFC) will all report.

Today will bring data on factory orders, and core capital equipment orders.

The following public company is slated to release corporate earnings today, April 4:

Atotech Ltd. (NYSE:SHCR -- $22.63) provides specialty electroplating and surface finishing solutions worldwide. Atotech will report its Q4 earnings of 2021 before the open today.

Looking ahead to tomorrow, data on the foreign trade deficit is on tap. Investors will also keep an eye on the S&P Global (Markit) services PMI, as well as the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) services index.
