By

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

PrintPRINT
There will be three huge events to watch next week:

The first will be the FOMC rate decision on Wednesday. The biggest question is what will happen when QE2 ends?

Secondly, on Thursday the GDP number will be released. Since the Japanese earthquake, most major economist have downgraded their GDP numbers. Is it possible the US economy will slip into another recession?

Finally, from a micro level it's still earnings season. Some names to watch next week are Netflix (NFLX), Proctor and Gamble (PG), Amazon (AMZN), Baidu (BIDU), and Caterpillar (CAT).

Have a great week!
