Perhaps the most highly anticipated report for the week is the employment situation report from the U.S. Labor Department, which is scheduled for released on Friday, Nov. 8.

Expected on Tuesday are reports on the eurozone's producer price index and on the U.S. service sector, released, respectively, by the European Commission's data office Eurostat and by the Institute of Supply Management.

Markit's composite PMI for the eurozone is expected Wednesday. The Office of National Statistics i n Britain is scheduled to release industrial and manufacturing production reports for September on Wednesday.

Outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas on Wednesday is scheduled to release a monthly jobs cuts reports. The Conference Board's leading economic indicator report for the United States is also set for the middle of the week.

Thursday is highlighted by the Bank of England's monetary policy announcement and the U.S. gross domestic product report on the third quarter put out by the Commerce Department.

The Labor Department on Thursday releases weekly unemployment benefit claims figures.

Friday includes Eurostat's monthly construction spending report, Statistics Canada's monthly
