Major Wall Street indices closed higher (DJI +0.59%, GSPC +0.76%, IXIC +1.12%). EIDO closed +1.05%higher. The strength was fuelled in the afternoon session by the Treasury Department's quarterly borrowing forecast cut by $55bn to $760bn in Q1. In addition, traders are also anticipating a busy earnings week, the Federal Reserve's monetary policy decision on Wednesday, and important labour data, including non-farm payrolls, unemployment, and JOLTS. 

Today's index is expected to move sideways with limited chances of strengthening.

The JCI closed higher and pulled back to the 7,162 area. The stochastic indicator was bearish, MACD histogram moved negative (bearish line) and volume increased. Bearish scenario: If it moves bearish again, the JCI is expected to weaken again to the support range of 7,099 - 7,115. Bullish scenario: If JCI is able to move bullish, there is an opportunity for JCI to head to the resistance of 7,194 - 7,20.
