Week Ahead: S&P 500 Looks to Finish in the Top 10

The week heading into Christmas proved to be an early gift for the bulls, following the Fed's decision to taper back $10 billion of its $85 billion asset purchase plan. The S&P 500 is now on track to finish the year up nearly 27%, placing 2013 in the top 10 best annual returns since 1947. TheStreet's Jill Malandrino and Andrew Krill turn to the week ahead and reveal where the action may be. Even though there are only 3.5 trading sessions, there will be data to move the needle.
