April Fools Day

For most people, April Fool's is a light-hearted and fun day but if you're a news trader, it's a minefield. In the AI era, it's going to be even worse as fake news can take on an indistinguishable air. There's also a big cohort of the internet that would love to fool Wall Street.

Don't take anything at face value.

Real news on the schedule today includes:

  • 9:45 am ET - US final S&P Global manufacturing PMI
  • 10 am ET - ISM manufacturing
  • 10 am ET - Construction spending
  • 10:30 am ET - Canada business outlook survey from the BOC

The Fed calendar is empty so be wary of any Fed headlines.
