On Thursday, December 8, investors await a key policy decision from the European Central Bank. At issue is the pace of the central bank's monthly pace of asset purchases, which stands at 80 billion euros. Investors will be watching to see if the ECB maintains that pace, amid reports in recent months that tapering may occur.

Meanwhile, it's a light day on the earnings calendar, with Hovnanian Enterprises (HOV) , Restoration Hardware (RH) and Broadcom (AVGO) reporting earnings. TheStreet's Scott Gamm reports from Wall Street.
