Morning Report – Monday 22nd February
FTSE to open at 6,590 (-34 pts)
Asian stocks failed to maintain their early sessions gains and selling pressure has started to increase as we head into European trading.
Commodities have held up well overnight and this may be supportive for the FTSE. Whilst in the bond market, we are now seeing a narrative emerge which suggests bond yields have now reached a level which makes equities less attractive.
|S&P 500||-0.19%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-1.06%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.36%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.23%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||+1.77%||Bullish for UK stocks|
Whilst the FTSE continues to hold just above the confluent support area we identified on Friday, we’re not as yet seeing any signs that the bulls have managed to change the current bearish momentum.
Should the FTSE break below 6,570 in early trading, a move down into the 6,480 would be a logical next step for the market.
