Traders will look to retail data next week for further support of economic growth — from the consumer.

"As the market digests (the jobs report) we'll continue to look for strength in follow-up for economic activity," said James Dunigan, chief investment officer at PNC Asset Management.

Major retailers Macy's, Kohl's, Nordstrom and JC Penney are scheduled to report earnings next week, while retail sales and consumer sentiment are due Friday. Other economic reports for the week ahead include the producer price index and the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey.
