Morning Report – Monday 7th February
FTSE to open at 7,543 (+27 pts)
Friday’s US non-farm payrolls came in much strong than expected…
The January payrolls print was +467,000 versus an expectation of +150,000. And December payrolls were revised higher from +199,000 to +510,000.
This impressive jobs data has further increased expectations of aggressive rate hikes, causing US bond yields to rally on Friday and Asian stocks to slip overnight.
Looking ahead this week, there will be key data on US inflation and Germany’s production and trade figures. We also have the UK’s quarterly and monthly GDP estimates, published on Friday.
|S&P 500||+0.52%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.11%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.19%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.35%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||+80pts||Bullish for UK stocks|
Friday’s price action saw the FTSE retreat from short-term resistance and we’re set to open at the mid-way point of last week’s range.
With the market mid-range, there’s very little edge to be hand in the short-term, but it’s worth keeping in mind that the dominant technical structure remains bullish.
