It was the second consecutive week where the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq composite posted positive weekly gains.

Next week will be a holiday-shortened one, with U.S. markets closed on Monday. However, it will still be a busy week for earnings, with more reports due from big banks and financial sector firms, including Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Charles Schwab, PNC Bank, and Discover Financial Services, among others. We’ll also get earnings from United Airlines, American Airlines, Procter & Gamble, and Netflix.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Census Bureau will report on December retail sales, while the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will issue the latest Producer Price Index (PPI). We can also expect updates on the housing market, including December housing starts, building permits, and existing home sales.
