The economic calendar is jam-packed this week, even though Thursday’s session is a half day that ends at 1 pm EDT, and Friday the stock market is closed for the July 4th holiday.

The big releases are ISM Manufacturing on Tuesday, ADP Employment Change on Wednesday, and ISM Non-Manufacturing and Payrolls on Thursday.  That’s in the U.S.  In Europe, the European unemployment data comes out tomorrow, and the ECB’s meeting is on Thursday morning.  Chinese Manufacturing and Non-manufacturing PMIs are also released this week.  (Here’s BI’s take on why this week’s data is especially important after the weak Q1 GDP report).

However, in single stock land, the calendar is very quiet, with no major earnings releases, and several monthly sales releases the only significant data points.
