6:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

SEE ALL MY CURRENT WATCH LISTS HERE: James’ Stock WatchLists

Yesterday, the market recovered somewhat from Monday’s big sell-off. The Dow closed up more than 200 points, or +0.8%. The S&P 500 ended up +0.8%, and the Nasdaq gained +1.1%.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
– Michael Jordan


Meanwhile, the trade fears that have gripped Asian markets in recent days appear to be tapering off.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index rose +0.5% Wednesday, while the tech-heavy Shenzhen Composite added +2.4% — helped by talk of new economic stimulus.

Japan’s Nikkei index gained almost +0.6%.

The picture is less sunny in Europe, where the Stoxx 600 index is down about -0.1%. Britain’s FTSE 100 is up only +0.2%. Markets in Germany are lower despite strong first-quarter GDP growth.

Back in the U.S., stock futures are pointing down. The Dow is set to drop about 20 points, or -0.1%, when markets open. The S&P 500 is pacing for a similar decline. The Nasdaq could open flat.

For earnings, we have Alibaba (BABA), Tencent (TCEHY) and Macy’s (M) announcing before the open.

The Census Bureau will release its US retail sales report for April at 8:30 a.m. ET.
