FTSE to open at 7,080 (+35 pts)

The Bank of England and Swiss National Bank followed the Federal Reserve’s lead in raising rates yesterday.

The backdrop of tightening monetary policy and stagnating global growth is taking its toll and stocks on both sides of the Atlantic sank lower yesterday.

Overnight in Asia, stocks are mixed with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng bouncing back (+1.15%) and Japan’s Nikkei 225 breaking lower (-1.77%).

We mentioned in yesterday’s Morning Report that for the bullish ‘support play’ scenario to play out, the market would need to hold in the top quartile of Wednesday’s range. This scenario had collapsed by 9am as the market broke decisively below support.

The market now looks set to retest the March lows reached at the start of the Ukraine war.
