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.
