Wall Street rebounds on strong GDP print

A strong, above-forecast print for Q1 GDP helped US indices advance on Friday. European bourses found support after Fitch maintained Italy’s sovereign rating while oil prices fell after Trump said he’d asked OPEC to increase supply. Japanese markets are closed all week, so volumes in Asia could be lower.

  • The Germany30 index rebounded on Friday, encouraged by moves on Wall Street and Fitch’s move to maintain Italy’s sovereign rating at BBB, but with a negative outlook
  • The index is hovering near seven-month highs and the 55-day moving average looks poised to cross above the 200-day moving average later this week. This may be interpreted as a longer-term bullish signal
  • There is a slew of Euro-zone confidence indicators scheduled today. The one likely having the most impact could be consumer confidence, which is seen steady at -7.9 in April.
