* MARKET THEMES FROM FRIDAY: Friday saw range bound trade consolidating the strength that we saw on Thursday. Low readings for both the Demand and Supply indicators suggest a range environment going into Monday's trade, with important support at Friday's premarket lows and resistance in the 990-992.50 area in ES. We saw a weaker dollar vs. euro on Friday and strength in gold and oil. Those intermarket themes have been supportive of higher stock prices in recent sessions.
