Good morning. It is 53 degrees and mostly sunny here in the Upper Hudson Valley, the forecast predicts clouds, maybe even rain, and temperatures in the 60s this afternoon. The longer range forecast has temperatures up around 90 on Wednesday and Thursday along with sunshine. It could be a hot week. The sunshine, if it happens, will be welcome as it's been a very rainy Spring.
At 9:05 a.m. ET DOW futures are +48 and the price of oil per barrel is up. The market is poised to open moderately higher.

Allegedly Trump is taping everything and the tapes are supposed to get turned over. It's chaos.
