Monday, Mar. 25, 8:45 a.m.EST -- Existing homes probably sold at an annual rate 
      of 3.7 million in February, roughly the same pace as in January. Prior to 
      February, resales had fallen for four consecutive months.
      Tuesday, Mar. 26, 10 a.m.EST -- The Conference Board's index of consumer 
      confidence likely edged up to 98.8 in March, says the median forecast of 
      economists surveyed by MMS International, one of The McGraw-Hill Companies. 
      Confidence rebounded in February, to 97, after slipping to 88.4 in January. 
      Both the assessment of current economic conditions and the expectations 
      component bounced back in February.
      Wednesday, Mar. 27, 8:30 a.m.EST -- New orders were likely little changed in 
      February, after a 3.1% advance in December and a 0.2% rise in January. Because 
      the weather prevented companies from shipping goods in January, the backlog of 
      unfilled orders shot up by 1.7% in January. That likely fell back in February.
      Friday, Mar. 29, 8:30 a.m.EST -- The MMS median forecast expects that the trade 
      deficit of goods and services widened to about $7.3 billion in January, from 
      just $6.8 billion in December. Exports, which rose 1.1% in December, were 
      probably little changed, but imports, also up 1.1%, continued to rise in 
      January, in part because of increased oil imports.
      Friday, Mar. 29, 10 a.m.EST -- New single-family homes probably sold at an 
      annual rate of 678,000 in February, down sharply from the 693,000 pace of 
      January. The 4.2% gain in January sales was largely unexpected, given that 
      month's harsh weather. With fixed mortgage rates near 8% once again, sales 
      should slow during the important spring season.
