Key factors driving the futures market:

Sheepishness among investors to get involved again after yesterday’s huge reversal
Hesitation in front of the April Employment Situation Report at 8:30 a.m. ET (focus to be on avg. hourly earnings number given inflation concerns)
10-yr note still not attracting buyers (current yield at 3.09%, up two basis points from yesterday’s settlement)
Oil and natural gas prices remain elevated
Festering growth concerns
