FTSE to open at 7,245 (-31 pts)
Asian stocks have weakened overnight with the Hang Seng and Nikkei 225 currently trading more than -0.50% lower.
However, it’s worth noting that China’s biggest property developers have rallied after a report said the government had created a dedicated fund to support the heavily indebted sector.
Looking ahead this week, on Tuesday we have quarterly earnings from the giants of US tech, Google parent Alphabet and Microsoft – Amazon and Apple report on Thursday.
While on Wednesday, all eyes will be on Washington for the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate announcement – a 75 basis point increase is expected.

Friday’s price action saw the FTSE reduce its daily range for a third consecutive session as the market consolidates just above short-term support at 7,225 and below key resistance at 7,361.
This contraction in daily ranges indicates that the market is coiling for a directional move.
