Planning for next week; here is a summary of upcoming economic news.

If the market is within our guidelines and there is sufficient credit for a decent trade, we will enter the weekly SPX Iron Condor Friday for the February 10 cycle. Last week we entered a day early which worked out nicely, but with the Monthly Employment report coming out Friday morning we will hold off on an early entry.

For planning purposes, next week's economic news is highlighted below:

Tuesday

8:30 am International Trade

Wednesday

10:30 am EIA Petroleum Status Report

Tentative EU Membership Vote

Thursday

8:30 am Jobless Claims

9:10 am Fed's James Bullard speaks

1:10 pm Fed's Charles Evans speaks

Friday

7:30 am Fed's Stanley Fischer speaks

8:30 am Import/Export prices

10:00 am Consumer Sentiment

Trade updates will be posted as appropriate

As always, stay keen on your risk management and trade carefully,
