Calm before the storm as markets remain muted ahead of key large cap earnings and tomorrow’s Federal Reserve monetary policy decision. That said, US equity futures are slightly lower this morning after Walmart announced a profit warning for Q2 and FY23, citing currency headwinds and surging prices. From a technical standpoint, the recent recovery in the S&P 500 appears to be nothing more than a bear-market rally, which has stalled at short-term resistance situated at 4000-15. While support at 3930-45 keeps the index within a tight range.
