Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors will be watching corn spreads and company earnings reports.

"The firming of the bull spreads in corn is a positive sign for the corn market," Kluis told customers in a daily note.

Kluis added, "Companies are starting to release corporate earnings reports this week. How will the stock market react? Many firms will show an extreme drop in profits or even a quarterly loss. They are also likely to take yearly projections of their profits sharply lower, or offer no guidance going forward. As many firms release their negative projections over the next two weeks, can the stock market continue its amazing rebound."
