Thursday's session on European markets brings an improvement in investor sentiment. Global equities were not overly concerned about the disappointing US GDP data, which showed that the American economy shrank -1.4% in Q1. Investors' attention is now focused on the quarterly results of major technology companies, which are in the middle of their earnings release cycle. Amazon and Apple will release their quarterly results today after the market close. In the European Union, uncertainty regarding the import of hydrocarbon products from Russia remains the main topic.

US100 managed to erase early losses and launched an impressive rebound. Index broke above the upper limit of the local 1:1 structure and is currently testing local resistance around 13436 pts. Should break higher occur, the next target for buyers is located around key resistance at 13750 pts which is marked with previous price reactions. On the other hand, if sellers manage to regain control, another downward impulse towards support at 13000 pts may be launched. Source: xStation5
