Your latest readout…


The FOMC meeting convenes today, but it will be Wednesday before we hear anything from officials.

Today’s notable happening is Instacart (CART). The company will make its Wall Street debut in the form of an IPO.

  • It’s priced at $30 per share, the top of the estimated range
  • That price gives it a market cap of about $10 billion
  • This is the most anticipated IPO in nearly 2 years
