Morning Report – Monday 7th June
FTSE to open at 7,074 (+5 pts)
For the second month in a row, US non-farm payrolls came in below expectations…
559,000 new jobs were added in May, short of the market’s expectation of 650,000, but well up from the 278,000 recorded in April, which was revised from 266,000.
Reaction in the US was mildly bullish as fears that the Fed would be forced into a u-turn subsided – causing US bond yields to drop back.
Overnight in Asia, stocks were lower despite Chinese imports hitting a 10-year high with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index down -0.62%.
|S&P 500||+0.88%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.62%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.43%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.09%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-4.3%||Bullish for UK stocks|
The FTSE had an indecisive session on Friday – coiling within Thursday’s range and failing to follow the US higher.
In the short-term there appears to be minimal edge for bull or bear. However, the dominant medium-term uptrend tips the probabilities slightly in favor of the upside.
