Trading Radar: Markets Enter Busiest Week For Economic Data in the Third Quarter


Economics, earnings reports, and market events for the week ahead.

Next week will be the busiest week of the quarter, and beyond, in terms of economic data releases. Notable reports for the week include June personal spending, the advance estimate of 2Q GDP, July nonfarm payrolls, July auto sales, July ISM manufacturing survey, July ADP private payrolls, the FOMC meeting, Chicago PMI, and Treasury auctions of 2-, 5-, and 7-year notes . I would be paying the most attention to GDP, NFP, and the FOMC meeting.

It will also be extremely busy on the earnings front. By my count, 232 major US companies will report next week.
