Calendar of Economic Events and Corporate Earnings:
Economic data continues to dominate the news, with the September Fed meeting kicking off on Tuesday. Policymakers are expected to leave the benchmark interest rate untouched, but market participants will be awaiting details on the Fed's plans to unwind its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. Earnings are relatively light, but traders should watch out for reports from some big names like Adobe Systems (ADBE) and AutoZone (AZO). Finally, a handful of speeches from Fed officials are set to close out the week.

The NAHB housing market index and Treasury international capital (TIC) flows are due out on Monday, Sept. 18. Steelcase (SCS) will report earnings after the close.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting is set to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 19, along with reports on housing starts and import and export prices. Adobe Systems (ADBE), AutoZone (AZO), Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), and FedEx (FDX) are set to report earnings.

Existing home sales and weekly crude inventories will hit the Street on Wednesday, Sept. 20, with the FOMC policy statement due out at 2 p.m. ET. The Fed's economic forecasts will be released simultaneously, followed by a 2:30 press conference with Chair Janet Yellen. Earnings are expected from General Mills (GIS).

It will be a full day of reports on Thursday, Sept. 21, kicking off with weekly jobless claims, the Philadelphia Fed index, the FHFA home price index, and the index of leading economic indicators. The earnings calendar features results from Manchester United (MANU).

A trio of Fed speeches are scheduled for Friday, Sept. 22, with San Francisco Fed President John Williams, Kansas City Fed President Esther George, and Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan set to deliver remarks. Also on the day's docket are the Baker-Hughes weekly rig count and Markit's flash composite purchasing managers index (PMI). CarMax (KMX) and Finish Line (FINL) are on the earnings list.

Calendar of Economic Events and Corporate Earnings:
With earnings season all but over, all eyes will be on next week's batch of economic data ahead of the September Fed meeting. And while expectations are low that the central bank will pull the trigger on a rate hike this time around, inflation data in the form of the producer price index (PPI) and consumer price index (CPI) will likely draw increased scrutiny. Retail stocks will also be in the spotlight, with monthly sales data due on Friday.

The economic and earnings calendars are bare on Monday, Sept. 11.

The Labor Department's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) is the lone economic report on Tuesday, Sept. 12, while the earnings docket is empty.

The PPI and weekly crude inventories update will be released on Wednesday, Sept. 13, along with the Treasury budget. United Natural Foods (UNFI) will take its late-season turn in the earnings confessional.

Inflation data continues to roll in on Thursday, Sept. 14, with the release of the CPI. Weekly jobless claims are also due. Oracle (ORCL) will report earnings.

Quadruple witching expiration hits the Street on Friday, Sept. 15, when futures and options on indexes and stocks simultaneously expire. Retail sales and industrial production are also on tap, as is the Empire State manufacturing survey, business inventories, and the University of Michigan consumer sentiment survey. There are no earnings reports of note.

Dow 30 + DIA: 12 Buy vs. 19 Sell, Rose 39%U vs. 29%D Prior Week. (*A reading of 52+ is Positive, a reading of 48- is Negative.)

IWM/IWB Computation: (IWM Close: 140.52U vs. IWB Close: 137.97U) Ratio: Rose 1.018U vs. 1.007U Prior Week (Small Cap Relative Strength Ratio is calculated taking the daily closing value of the Russell 2000 Index, and dividing it by the Russell 1000. If the line moves upward, then the Russell 2000 is outperforming on a relative basis.
That can mean going up faster, or going down more slowly. If the line is moving downward, then the small cap universe is generally doing worse than the large caps, on a relative basis. (*A Favorite Indicator as the Ratio points to a shift in portfolio positions by risk capital investors moving in, or out, of Small Cap stocks.)

ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats (NOBL) Close: Rose 58.18U vs. 57.62U Last Week) (Directional Indicator: Rose -7U vs. -15D Prior Week) (Historic High: 86.54 8-15-16 / Historic Low: 57.73 8-11-117)

Calendar of Economic Events and Corporate Earnings:
With few notable companies featured on the upcoming week's earnings slate, investors will be forced to focus on economic data. More specifically, the holiday-shortened week is dominated by a slew of speeches from regional Fed presidents, including four on Thursday alone. Meanwhile, Kroger Co's (NYSE:KR) release on Friday is likely the most noteworthy part of the week's earnings calendar.

The U.S. stock market will be closed on Monday, Sept. 4, for Labor Day.

On Tuesday, Sept. 5, factory orders will hit the Street. Traders will also hear from Fed Governor Lael Brainard, Minnesota Fed President Neel Kashkari, and the Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan. Hewlett Packard (HPE) will release earnings.

For Wednesday, Sept. 6, the economic calendar features international trade data, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) non-manufacturing index, and the Fed's Beige Book. Fred's (FRED), G-III Apparel (GIII), JinkoSolar (JKS), and Verint Systems (VRNT) make up the earnings calendar.

Weekly jobless claims, productivity and labor costs, and the regularly scheduled update on domestic crude inventories come out on Thursday, Sept. 7. Plus, Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic, New York Fed President William Dudley, Kansas City Fed President Esther George, and Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester will all speak throughout the day. Barnes & Noble (BKS), Finisar (FNSR), Navistart (NAV), VeriFone (PAY), and Zumiez (ZUMZ) are the companies that'll report earnings.

Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker will talk on Friday, Sept. 8, and Kroger (KR) will round of the earnings schedule.

Calendar of Economic Events and Corporate Earnings:
Economic data dominates this week's trading calendar, with updates on gross domestic product (GDP), manufacturing, and housing scattered across the schedule. The main focus, however, will be the release of the nonfarm payrolls report for August on Friday. The earnings slate isn't completely dry, with names like Best Buy Co Inc (NYSE:BBY), Box Inc (NYSE:BOX), and Palo Alto Networks Inc (NYSE:PANW) set to report.

On Monday, Aug. 28, Wall Street will see the Dallas Fed's manufacturing index, and data on international trade in goods. The earnings calendar is rather bare.

On Tuesday, Aug. 29, the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller home price index and consumer confidence will be released. BBY's report will highlight the earnings calendar. H & R Block (HRB) and Hain Celestial (HAIN) will also report.

For Wednesday, Aug. 30, Automatic Data Processing will release its employment report, and the regularly scheduled update on domestic crude inventories will be unveiled, too. But the main focus will be the preliminary reading for second-quarter GDP. For earnings, Analog Devices (ADI), Bob Evans (BOBE), Box (BOX), Ctrip.com (CTRP), Five Below (FIVE), Shoe Carnival (SCVL), and Workday (WDAY) will step into the spotlight.

Weekly jobless claims come out on Thursday, Aug. 31. Also on the economic schedule is the Chicago purchasing managers index (PMI), the National Association of Realtors pending home sales index, and data on household income. Ambarella (AMBA), Campbell Soup (CPB), Ciena (CIEN), Dollar General (DG), lululemon athletica (LULU), Nutanix (NTXN), and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) make up the earnings slate.

There's plenty of data to digest on Friday, Sept. 1, too. On top of the unveil of the nonfarm payrolls report for August, auto sales will be released throughout the day, and the PMI manufacturing index, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) manufacturing index, construction spending, and the University of Michigan's consumer sentiment survey will all come out. The earnings calendar is empty.

Dow 30 + DIA: 18 Buy vs. 13 Sell, Fell 58%D vs. 77%U Prior Week. (*A reading of 52+ is Positive, a reading of 48- is Negative.)

IWM/IWB Computation: (IWM Close: 136.47D vs. IWB Close: 135.63D) Ratio: Fell 1.006D vs. 1.019D Prior Week (Small Cap Relative Strength Ratio is calculated taking the daily closing value of the Russell 2000 Index, and dividing it by the Russell 1000. If the line moves upward, then the Russell 2000 is outperforming on a relative basis.
That can mean going up faster, or going down more slowly. If the line is moving downward, then the small cap universe is generally doing worse than the large caps, on a relative basis. (*A Favorite Indicator as the Ratio points to a shift in portfolio positions by risk capital investors moving in, or out, of Small Cap stocks.)

ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats (NOBL) Close: Fell 57.73D vs. 58.42U Last Week) (Directional Indicator: Fell 13D vs. 21U Prior Week) (Historic High: 86.54 8-15-16 / Historic Low: 57.73 8-11-117)

Calendar of Economic Events and Corporate Earnings:
The earnings schedule thins out some in the upcoming week, but there are still a number of high-profile names on the list. The retail sector will likely be the primary focus, with a schedule that includes Dow stocks Home Depot Inc (NYSE:HD) and Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT). Notable names like Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) and Deere & Company (NYSE:DE) will also report later in the week.

On Thursday, Aug. 17, weekly jobless claims will be released, along with the Philadelphia Fed business outlook survey and industrial production data.
