Good Morning Traders.
It is Friday the 5th of April, here is what to look out for today.

The S&P 500 was headed for its biggest weekly decline in over five months as rising geopolitical concerns in the Middle East and hawkish signals from Federal Reserve officials stoked worries about stagflation.
