The hourly and 4hr RSI's were pretty beaten up after last night's futures weakness, and that oversold bounce is currently underway. 334.92 the low from Friday, trading just under there currently for a small gap down potential

March Vix futures 3 months, daily candles A push over the 2/24 Ukraine invasion highs here last night which is note-able; Currently seeing a reversal and upper wick of selling off this broad market bounce attempt.
