The week's major econ reports focus on housing, with existing home sales out Monday at 10 a.m. Eastern and housing starts released Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. A third housing report, of less impact, will also be released on Monday: The Home Builders' housing market index, at 10 a.m.
Leading indicators out this week (in order of importance):
The interest rate spread between 10-year Treasuries and the federal funds rate, reported continually during market hours.
The M2 money supply, moved to Friday 4:30 p.m. because of the holiday, from the Federal Reserve.
The S&P 500 index, reported continually during market hours.
Average weekly initial jobless claims, at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, a day earlier than usual because of the holiday.

Not itself a leading indicator, the index of leading indicators, a compilation of the forward-looking economic datastreams, will be out Wednesday at 10 a.m.
Other reports of interest:
Wednesday: Petroleum inventories at 11 a.m.
I also like to keep an eye on the Baltic dry index of world shipping, updated daily.
By my rules, as of Monday I can trade December vertical spreads and March single options and straddles. Of course, shares are good at any time.
Happy Thanksgiving, and good trading!
