Morning Report – Friday 29th July
FTSE to open at 7,383 (+38 pts)
Thursday’s US GDP data came in below analyst expectations as the world’s largest economy shrank for a second consecutive quarter…
A contraction of -0.9% on an annualised basis in the second quarter followed at -1.6% drop in the first three months of 2022.
The weak growth data prompted a late rally on Wall Street and a drop in US government bond yields as traders moved to price in less aggressive rate hikes.
While in Asia, Chinese stocks have sank lower as traders priced in the impact of a global recession.
|S&P 500||+1.21%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-2.37%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.64%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.66%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-90pts||Bullish for UK stocks|
Yesterday’s indecisive price action initially saw the FTSE daily rolling futures drop back below resistance, before a late afternoon rally during US trading hours.
Should the market close the week above 7,361 resistance this would indicate the bulls are back in control.
