Investors are celebrating the unofficial kickoff of summer this week, a period normally associated with declining activity on Wall Street. Economic data will dominate the spotlight once again, with a series of high-profile reports scheduled to make the rounds.

With the exception of the labor market, the U.S. economy has largely disappointed through the first five months of the year. Data over the next five days will confirm slower progress or signal a return to strength for the world’s largest economy.
