As dusk breaks on the first week of March, ADP figures are calling. It will be a big factor this week as the Fed seems to be focusing more so on employment rather than the big inflation concern.

There seems to be some positivity in the market as progress is being made on the US stimulus package as well as rollout of the highly anticipated Johnson and Johnson Vaccine which should start on Tuesday.

Bond Yields hit 1.61% on Friday as we saw Gold stumble down to 1717 pushing it down to the lowest point it has been this year. This morning saw a recovery back up to 1750 as the Bond Yields came back down to 1.40%.
