Today is going to be a big day for economic data.Here’s a quick synopsis of what’s to come.

  • January personal income: Analysts expect a 0.4% rise vs. 0.5% in the month before.
  • January personal spending: Analysts expect 0.4% vs. 0.0% in December.
  • Initial jobless claims: Analysts predict 355K vs. 351K last month.
  • Construction spending: Analysts expect a 1.0% sequential gain in January.
  • ISM Manufacturing: Analysts expect 54.5.
  • Total Vehicle sales: Analysts expect 14.0-14.4 million.

And regarding that last number, total vehicle sales, you should watch it closely, since it’s a decent proxy for the unemployment rate, which normally comes out on the first Friday of each month, but this month is coming out next week.
