Morning Report – Friday 14th January
FTSE to open at 7,533 (-31 pts)
After a three-day pause, the US ‘tech wreck’ resumed yesterday with the Nasdaq composite index tumbling 2%.
The sell-off marked a somewhat strange satellite delay from Wednesday’s painfully high US inflation data. And having seemingly been calmed by the Fed’s comments earlier in the week, the inflation panic has kicked back in.
Asian stocks have mirrored the sell-off on Wall Street with Japan’s Nikkei 225 down more than 1%, and the Hang Seng also in negative territory.
|S&P 500||-1.42%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.28%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.18%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.38%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-28pts||Bullish for UK stocks|
The FTSE continues to display strength relative to US stocks so far this year and the UK index only experienced mild selling pressure yesterday.
We are seeing some evidence that last week’s broken swing highs will provide support, but we still can’t rule out a deeper retracement.
