Economically, the German GfK Consumer Climate Index for July was no worse than feared at -27.4 vs. (E) -27.9 which is easing concerns about a swift drop-off in global economic growth.
Today, there are several economic reports to watch for: International Trade in Goods (E: -$102.0B), Case-Shiller Home Price Index (E: 1.8%), and most importantly Consumer Confidence (E: 101.0).

Two Fed officials are also scheduled to speak today: Barkin (8:00 a.m. ET) and Daly (12:30 p.m. ET) and there is a 7-Yr Treasury Note auction at 1:00 p.m. ET that could move yields and influence stock trading.
