Empty Shopping Mall at Tysons Corner by Bill O'Leary | WashingtonPost.comThe day after Christmas is traditionally one of the busiest shopping days of the year only second to Black Friday. Since the holiday fell on a weekend and an extended weekend for many, there was much anticipation of ending the year with a retail bang on the heals of growing Consumer Confidence.

Now that the weekend has past and a blizzard has crippled the East Coast, the holiday cheer is beginning to fade. Along with the many families who were stormed in and/or opted to take this week off to enjoy the holiday season, Wall Street bankers and investors have also done the same.

Needless to say there are still a few economic reports scheduled for release this week. Initial and Continuing Jobless Claims Reports will be reported on Thursday as usual in addition to the high impact Chicago PMI (aka. the Business Barometer).

Still looking for a holiday gift that will give back all year round? If you’ve been thinking about buying a home or refinancing your existing home, the good news is that home loan rates are still attractive right now.
