Morning Report – Monday 31st January

FTSE to open at 7,527 (+61 pts)

Lunar New Year holidays made for thin conditions, but Asian stocks have traded higher overnight despite Chinese factory activity showing a slowdown in January.

Looking ahead, it’s a busy week for economic news with the Bank of England taking centre stage on Thursday as it decides whether or not to hike interest rates again.

We also have a raft of purchasing managers’ index data which will provide some international comparisons on inflation and unemployment in developed countries.

And on the corporate earnings front, we have quarterly numbers from global tech giants including, Alphabet, Spotify and the newly named Meta (parent of Facebook and Instagram).

Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE looks set to start the week in relative bullish mood, with prices consolidating within Friday’s range.

Given, last week’s volatile V-shaped reversal, we will be looking for a retest of the early-Jan swing highs.
