Morning Report – Monday 12th April
FTSE to open at 6,893 (-22 pts)
Asian stocks have weakened overnight as we head into a big week for US bank earnings…
On Wednesday, we have earnings reports from JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs, followed by Bank of America and Citigroup on Thursday, and Morgan Stanley and Bank of New York Mellon on Friday.
Also this week is US retail data which will indicate whether another round of stimulus payments that reached American households in March sent sales jumping again after they fell in February.

We mentioned in Friday’s Morning Report that selling pressure was likely to increase at the New Year highs and that’s exactly what we’ve seen…
The FTSE has been in retreat since the futures tested the highs on Thursday evening. However, trend structure and momentum remain firmly bullish, and we’d expect to see another attempt to break the highs at some point this week. The ascending trendline at 6,860 looks like a good approximation of where the markets next inflection point will be.
