14:44 EDTGEGeneral Electric breaks downtrend resistance, levels to watch
The shares have been trending down since hitting a recent peak of price in June. Today's move up, over 1.8% at time of writing to $25,57, has broken downtrend resistance. That puts the shares just a tick over the 10-day moving average which is a good proxy for a hand-drawn resistance line. A close back below the 10-day would leave the current bearish picture for the stock unchanged. Next resistance is at $25.94. Support below the 10-day is at $25.27. Bernstein earlier upgraded the shares to Outperform with at $33 price target.

05:57 EDTBABoeing announces partnership with South African Airways
Boeing, South African Airways, or SAA, and SkyNRG announced they are collaborating to make sustainable aviation biofuel from a new type of tobacco plant. This initiative broadens cooperation between Boeing and SAA to develop renewable jet fuel in ways that support South Africa's goals for public health as well as economic and rural development. SkyNRG is expanding production of the hybrid plant known as Solaris as an energy crop that farmers could grow instead of traditional tobacco. Test farming of the plants, which are effectively nicotine-free, is underway in South Africa with biofuel production expected from large and small farms in the next few years. Initially, oil from the plant's seeds will be converted into jet fuel. In coming years, Boeing expects emerging technologies to increase South Africa's aviation biofuel production from the rest of the plant.
