Interesting Reads:

Market Moving Headline: U.S. stock index futures closed lower, last week.

This came after the Federal Reserve announced it expects real GDP to grow 6.5% and inflation to rise as high as 2.4% this year.

Key Takeaways:

- Federal Reserve upping forecast.

- Bond, equity volatility divergent.

- Market is positioned for upside.

In the coming sessions, participants will want to pay attention to the VWAP anchored from the $3,978.50 overnight rally-high, as well as the high-volume area (HVNode) near $3,900.00.

In the best case, the S&P 500 remains above the $3,900.00 volume area, and VWAP anchored from the $3,978.50 peak, taking out Friday’s minimal excess high. This would suggest buyers, on average, are in control and winning since the March 17 rally-high.

Any activity below the VWAP anchored from the $3,978.50 peak may (1) leave the $3,900.00 HVNode as an area of supply, offering initiative sellers favorable entry and responsive buyers favorable exit.
