Morning Juice – US Session Prep

Good Morning, Traders
It is Wednesday the 3rd of April, here is what to look out for today.

US equities were poised to extend this week’s losses as investors weigh signs of economic resilience against mounting concerns that the Federal Reserve will keep interest rates higher for longer.
