After last week’s positive jobs report, monetary policy meetings and news from Europe, market watchers will enter the new week with some momentum. There’s not a lot of economic data to parse through but there’s still a handful of interesting earnings reports to review.

Spain could be a topic of conversation, notably whether or not it will seek a bailout. On Friday, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said a decision had not been made yet. In addition, after combing through ECB president Mario Draghi’s comments from Thursday, it did provide some details for possible bond purchases.
