Another heavy week of U.S. data in the trading period ahead ahead. Monday has the preliminary Markit Manufacturing PMI for September.

Tuesday sees the release of the monthly home price index for July, the CaseShiller housing for July, and U.S. consumer confidence for September.

Slated for Wednesday is the August durable goods report and new home sales for August.

Building permits for August will be released on Thursday alongside the final second quarter reading of gross domestic product followed by pending home sales for August. Housing data, like jobs, is still crucial to gauging the U.S. economic recovery.

Friday has  core PCE for August, personal consumption for the same month and the University of Michigan consumer sentiment final reading for September.
