December’s personal consumption expenditures index, which is the Federal Reserve’s primary inflation measure, is due to be released at 8:30 a.m. ET on Friday.
Investors will be watching the data closely, given that the Fed indicated after its latest policy meeting this week that it could start raising interest rates in March in an attempt to help curb inflation.
December’s personal income and spending data is also due out at 8:30 a.m. ET, along with the fourth-quarter employment cost index.

There are no auctions scheduled to be held on Friday.
