With Fed in rearview, traders eye US, global data

With the Federal Reserve's latest policy-setting meeting in the rearview mirror, the coming week should have Wall Street switching its focus to the U.S. and global economy, starting on Monday with a look at the health of the manufacturing sector.

"I'm really focused on the PMI; we'll see on Monday how the rest of the quarter looks," said James Liu, global market strategist at JPMorgan Funds, referring to the Markit U.S. flash manufacturing PMI for March.

"Now that the Fed is out of the way, investors will probably turn their attention to more fundamental issues, as there is more data than anything else next week," said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities.
