Morning Report – Monday 30th May

FTSE to open at 7,622 (+37 pts)

The S&P 500 ended last week on a strong footing after data showed that US consumer spending rose in April and the uptick in inflation slowed.

Overnight in Asia, stocks have jumped higher with the Hang Seng and Nikeei 225 both up more than +2% on the day.

Looking ahead in this shortened week for UK equity markets, there remains plenty of economic data to watch out for…

We have inflation and unemployment data for the eurozone countries, on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively, plus the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book on US economic conditions on Wednesday, and US non-farm payrolls on Friday.

Gold+0.49%Bearish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY+0.46%Bullish for UK stocks

Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE has continued to climb higher – breaking above the descending line created by the series of lower swing highs that forming in April and May.

Volatility is starting to contract, with Friday’s daily range the smallest in over seven sessions – although this isn’t too surprising given that volumes are likely to be thin this week.
