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 look to enter the weekly SPX Iron Condor Friday, after the market digests the Monthly Employment Situation report. There is too much risk this week to enter a day early, as this news sometimes brings volatility that could move against the position. The trade will be for the March 17 cycle, which is the regular monthly cycle.

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


9:00 pm China Industrial Production Report

8:30 am Producer Price Index


8:30 am Consumer Price Index
