US equities began the week on a moderately positive note, with the sp' opening higher, and pushing to 2742. This was notably within the lower end of the 2741/52 price gap from March 19th. There was a cooling wave into the mid afternoon, filling the opening gap, and putting in a micro spike low from 2725. Note the settling black-fail candle, which leans s/t bearish.
Volatility remained subdued, but did manage the first gain in 8 days, with the VIX settling in the upper 12s.
