Morning Report – Monday 1st August

FTSE to open at 7,418 (-5 pts)

Stocks on Wall Street had a strong finish to last week as traders began to price-in the end of the Fed’s tightening cycle.

Overnight in Asia, stocks have made small gains despite Chinese factory activity in slowing more than analyst expectations in July.

Looking ahead this week, all eyes will be on the Bank of England as its Monetary Policy Committee weighs up how high to raise interest rates in order to bring inflation under control.

Governor Andrew Bailey has previously said an increase of half a percentage point is a possibility — which would be the biggest increase in 27 years.
