Morning Report – Friday 10th December
FTSE to open at 7,287 (-34 pts)
Wall Street dipped yesterday with tech stocks showing the highest level of weakness as traders took some risk off the table as the weekend approaches.
Overnight in Asia, Japan’s wholesale inflation hit a record 9.0% in November – a sign that supply bottlenecks and rising raw material costs are continuing to apply upwards pressure on prices.
Today, all eyes will be on this afternoon’s US CPI data, as the Fed looks to combat inflation via monetary tightening despite the uncertainty created by the Omicron variant.
|S&P 500||-0.72%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.88%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.12%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.19%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-1.41%||Bullish for UK stocks|
After last week’s whipsaw price action, this week’s strong directional move higher has given bulls plenty to cheer about.
A pullback from such a steep rally was almost inevitable, but to maintain the bullish momentum into next week, the FTSE will ideally need to end the week above 7,270.
