Morning Report – Friday 28th January
FTSE to open at 7,545 (-9 pts)
The US dollar surged to 18-month highs yesterday as currency traders reacted to Fed chair Jay Powell’s refusal to rule out an aggressive series of interest rate rises this year.
Dollar strength weighed heavy on Wall Street’s stocks with the S&P 500 chopping sideways just above long-term support.
While Apple shares gained more than 2% in post-market trading after the iPhone maker beat profit estimates.
|S&P 500||-0.54%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-1.09%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.03%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.05%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-3.22%||Bullish for UK stocks|
Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE rally from the ascending trendline and break above the inside day pattern (Monday’s high).
The market is now on course for a ‘bullish reversal week’ and has the January swing highs in its sights.
