EXISTING HOME SALES

Tuesday, Apr. 25, 10 a.m. EDT--Home resales likely fell to a 4.7 million annual rate in March from February's 4.75 million, says the median forecast of economists polled by Standard & Poor's MMS, a unit of The McGraw-Hill Companies.CONSUMER CONFIDENCE

Tuesday, Apr. 25, 10 a.m. EDT--The Conference Board's consumer confidence index probably slipped to 136 in April, from 136.7 in March.DURABLE GOODS ORDERS

Wednesday, Apr. 26, 8:30 a.m. EDT--New durable goods orders likely rose 1.9% in March, reversing most of their 2.3% decline of February.REAL GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT

Thursday, Apr. 27, 8:30 a.m. EDT--The S&P MMS median forecast projects that the economy grew at a strong annual rate of 5.6% in the first quarter, following a torrid 7.3% pace in the fourth quarter. Consumer spending, business investment, and housing all contributed to the gain. A wider trade gap likely subtracted from growth.EMPLOYMENT COST INDEX

Thursday, Apr. 27, 8:30 a.m. EDT--The total cost of wages, salaries, and benefits likely increased 1% in the first quarter, says the S&P MMS survey. That follows a 1.1% rise in the fourth quarter, and would increase compensation by at least 4% from a year ago. If so, that would be the fastest yearly pace in eight years.PERSONAL INCOME

Friday, Apr. 28, 8:30 a.m. EDT--Personal income probably rose 0.5% in March, after a 0.4% gain in February. Consumer spending likely increased 0.5% in March, after a 1% jump in the previous month.
