At 8:30 AM ET, we’ll get the March reading of personal income and spending.

Economists are looking for a 0.4% gain in income, down from 1.1% in February.

“We already know from last week’s GDP data that real consumption rose at an impressive annualised rate of 3.2% in the first quarter, so the interest in March’s personal spending and income data will be to see just how sharp the slowdown in spending was at the end of the quarter,” said Capital Economics’ Paul Dales.
