Morning Report – Friday 18th February

FTSE to open at 7,547 (+10 pts)

Stocks on Wall Street sank lower yesterday while safe haven assets rallied, as Biden said Putin was on the brink of invading Ukraine within several days.

In contrast, safe haven assets rallied with gold rallying towards last summer’s highs, bond prices rallied (yields fell), and the Japanese Yen also strengthened.

Overnight in Asia, we’ve seen an easing of some of the risk aversion with gold and the Japanese yen dropping back, but Asian stocks have weakened.

AUD/JPY+0.49%Bullish for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield-66ptsBullish for UK stocks
