Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Good Morning Traders.
It is Tuesday the 2nd of April, and here is what to look out for today.

US Factory Orders and Job Openings will offer new perspectives on the health of the economy after Monday’s surprisingly robust manufacturing data caused markets to adjust for the prospect that the Federal Reserve may not lower interest rates as much this year. Expectations for a Federal Reserve interest rate cut were dampened by economic resiliency, setting the stage for a lacklustre opening for US equities on Tuesday.

US Factory Orders MoM for February
Forecast 1% | Prior -3.6% | Range 1.6%/0.5%

US JOLTS Job Openings
