Other Potential Market Movers
  • The UK Snap Election results, James Comey testimony to Senate Intel Committee, ECB Press Conference, China Trade Balance report, 1Q Household Change in Net Worth, weekly Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index, weekly EIA natural gas inventory report, (BABA) investor day and the Citi SMid-Cap Conference could also impact trading today.
BOTTOM LINE:  Asian indices are mostly lower, weighed down by financial and commodity shares in the region. I expect US stocks to open mixed and to rally into the afternoon, finishing modestly higher.  The Portfolio is 100% net long heading into the day.
