- And on the economic front, it's going to be all about jobs. The monthly jobs report for February coming out next Friday. Last month's report starting the year off with a bang, but economists are forecasting job growth to start to slow down here. 210,000 jobs are expected to be added. The unemployment rate expected to hold steady at 3.7%.

- And moving on to the Federal Reserve, Fed Chair Jerome Powell will give the Central Bank's view next week in two days of congressional testimony, giving us more insight into the path of potential rate cuts. Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic reiterating his views today, saying he wants to wait to start cutting interest rates until inflation recedes further and that the fed's job is, quote, "not done."
