Morning Report – Monday 22nd March
FTSE to open at 6,687 (-21 pts)
We can see from the Risk Barometer (below) that there is a mixed backdrop for equities as we head towards the European open…
The Turkish lira dropped by as much as 14% overnight following President Erdogan’s sacking of his central bank chief. Whilst this news is bad for risk appetite in emerging markets, it has caused bond yields to drop back from highs, which along with last week’s drop in oil has eased inflationary concerns.
|S&P 500||-0.06%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.17%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.85%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.35%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-2.47%||Bullish for UK stocks|
The FTSE managed to fight back on Friday afternoon, to finish the week above 6,705 support.
We’re set to open in and around that support level, and the bulls will need to defend this area during the opening rotations to prevent a swift move down towards 6,600.
