Congratulations to Tom Lawler for winning another "Crystal Ball" award (most accurate 2- and 3-year forecasts ending in 2013 for panel of forecasters).  

Also I've another great site to the right sidebar: House of Debt by Atif Mian and Amir Sufi (I've linked to several over their papers of the years and I'm happy to see them blogging).

Tuesday:
• At 7:30 AM ET, the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index for February.

• At 10:00 AM, the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey for January from the BLS. The number of job openings were up 10.5% year-over-year in December compared to December 2012, and Quits increased in December and were up about 12% year-over-year.

• Also at 10:00 AM, Monthly Wholesale Trade: Sales and Inventories for January. The consensus is for a 0.4% increase in inventories.
