XLV honorable mention for new all time highs yesterday, so there's definitely some strong sectors seeing rotation, and not widespread market weakness. Watching for follow thru today, or if we still end up with a "double top" look

Market is Closed
[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +22.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +57.00.
The S&P 500 futures trade 22 points, or 0.5%, above fair value at the end of a volatile week. The major indices enter the session down between 0.7% (Dow Jones Industrial Average) and 3.9% (Russell 2000) this week.
The positive bias appears technical in nature after the S&P 500 closed above its 200-day moving average (now 4493) yesterday. Still, there's some trepidation associated with the Fed's hawkish mindset, the Russia-Ukraine situation, the COVID lockdowns in Shanghai, and rising interest rates.
On the latter, the 10-yr Treasury note yield is up two basis points to 2.68% while the 2-yr yield is up five basis points to 2.52%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.1% to 99.86. WTI crude futures are down 0.1% to $95.91/bbl.
Separately, semiconductor stocks are seeing some relief with the broader futures market but also after Taiwan Semi (TSM 101.33, +0.81, +0.8%) reported Q1 revenue above consensus. The iShares Semiconductor ETF (SOXX 442.32, +2.62, +0.6%) is up 0.6% in pre-market action.
Today's economic data will be limited to Wholesale Inventories for February (Briefing.com consensus 2.1%) at 10:00 a.m. ET.
