This morning, London’s FTSE 100 opened in negative territory, while Paris’ CAC 40 and Frankfurt’s DAX posted small gains. Stocks in Asia closed mixed.

The US Bureau of Economic Analysis is due to report gross domestic product at 8:30 a.m. ET, and economists polled by Refinitiv are now projecting 2.1% annualized growth for the first quarter.

That would be only slightly lower than the previous quarter’s 2.2% — which followed two robust quarters in mid-2018.

American Airlines (AAL), Chevron (CVX), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Goodyear Tire (GT), IMAX (IMAX) and LendingTree (TREE) will release earnings before the open.



I ran my routine stock screens early this morning, yet did not find any new stocks to add to our watch lists.

We had an earnings breakout yesterday in NOW, and I also removed AJG from our watch list; there are now a total of 18 stocks on our watch lists.

One of those which looks poised to possibly break out today is MIME from our Technical SetUps WatchList.

Shares have been building a base near new highs and above the stock’s 50-day moving average.
