Good morning. It is 57 degrees and somewhat sunny here in the Upper Hudson Valley, the forecast predicts a mostly cloudy day with temperatures in the 70s this afternoon. The longer range forecast for the week is mild, temperatures in the 60s and 70s during the day and a mix of rain and sun. It's been a very rainy Spring in these parts.
At 9:10 a.m. ET DOW futures are +41 and the price of oil per barrel is slightly lower. The market is poised to open moderately higher.
I've had the good fortune of being completely and utterly out of touch with the news over the past three days. Checking in briefly right now, we see there's been a bombing in England.
