My Observations and What to Expect:
Futures are slightly down.
High probability that we find out whether this market can break through the 1130 level on the S&P today.
A good jobs report, would likely push us through the mark.
A bad jobs report could be the perfect catalyst for a reversal up against 1130 resistance and a well-overbought market.
Bear target would be for a close below 1113, which would push us below the week's lows as well as the 200-day moving average.
Volume still has not been over impressive to-date. Not a lot of enthusiasm in this rally.
