Futures are little changed following an increase in geo-political tensions over the weekend and ahead of the first really busy week of 2024.

Three U.S. soldiers were killed in an attack in Jordan by Iranian backed militants and that’s further escalating tensions in the region and oil rallied in response.

There were no economic reports overnight.

This is the first truly busy week of 2024 as we have a Fed decision on Wednesday and a jobs report on Friday and it’s the most important week of earnings season.  But, the week starts slowly as there are no economic reports today and minimal earnings.  So, focus will remain on geo-politics and 1) Any additional attacks on U.S. soldiers in the region or 2) Information about a U.S. retaliatory strike could push oil higher and weigh on stocks.
