U.S. averages are treading near all-time highs and the S&P appears headed for its seventh consecutive week of gains.

The National Association of Home Builders releases its monthly survey Monday. That is followed by government reports on new construction and existing home sales Tuesday and Wednesday. Home-improvement retailers Lowe's and Home Depot also report quarterly results this week.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Federal Reserve releases minutes from the October meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee.
