The markets are flat going into the first full week of April, which is historically a strong month for stocks — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
The markets are stronger than they should be in light of the major global and economic events we’ve endured this year.

We have a slow week in terms of economic reports, with the most important data being the Federal Open Market Committee minutes coming Wednesday. This will give us a better understanding of what the Fed discussed at its last meeting.
