The S&P 500 futures trade 11 points, or 0.2%, above fair value to start the week, as the market continues to weather a host of growth-related concerns.

Some of those concerns include the prolonged Russia-Ukraine situation, the COVID lockdowns in Shanghai, the potential for a Fed policy mistake, the 2s10s spread inversion, supply chain disruptions, and an inflationary environment that includes $100/bbl oil prices ($100.29, +1.02, +1.0%).

Tesla (TSLA 1090.43, +5.84, +0.5%) reported over 310,000 vehicle deliveries in the first quarter. Starbucks (SBUX 89.02, -2.47, -2.7%) suspended its share buyback program.

The Treasury market is trading little changed, although the 30-yr yield has risen four basis points to 2.46% after dropping 18 basis points last week. The 2-yr yield is unchanged at 2.43%, and the 10-yr yield is up one basis point to 2.39%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.3% to 98.88.
