Important economic data scheduled for today:

15:00 CB Consumer Confidence (US)Previous: 58.6, forecast: 60.8.Conference Board (CB) Consumer Confidence measures the level of consumer confidence in economic activity. It is a leading indicator as it can predict consumer spending, which plays a major role in overall economic activity. Higher readings point to higher consumer optimism.
15:00 New Home Sales (US) – Previous: 369K, forecast: 381K. New Home Sales measures the annualized number of new single-family homes that were sold during the previous month. This report tends to have more impact when it's released ahead of Existing Home Sales because the reports are tightly correlated. Both datas will be released at the same time when Bernanke starts his speech which could be more important than the readings itself.
