Planning for next week; here is a summary of upcoming economic news.

If the market is within our guidelines and there is sufficient credit for a decent trade, we will look at entering the weekly SPX Iron Condor Thursday or Friday for the March 31 cycle. After yesterday's selloff the VIX has increased to almost 13, so we may wait until the usual Friday entry date depending on the market and available credit.
