Good Morning Traders!
It is Monday 3rd of April and today we get both S&P and ISM Manufacturing PMIs, but here are some other things to look out for.
OPEC+ announced a surprising drop in oil output of more than 1 million barrels per day, contradicting earlier promises that supplies would remain stable and creating a fresh risk to the world economy.

The unexpected move by OPEC+ is set to hike US fuel prices just as President Biden is expected to open his re-election campaign, and he has few choices to respond.
The problems at Silicon Valley Bank and First Republic have come at the worst possible time for San Francisco, which is still recovering from the pandemic.
