Morning Report – Monday 8th November
FTSE to open at 7,303 (-1 pt)
Friday’s US non-farm payrolls data came in ahead of expectations as the headwind from a surge in COVID-19 infections over the summer subsided.
While Chinese trade data, released on Sunday showed China’s exports beat forecasts in October to deliver a record trade surplus, but a miss on imports added to evidence of a slowing in domestic demand.
Looking ahead the week, markets will be firmly focused on consumer demand, with UK retail sales on Tuesday, and Chinese and US inflation data on Wednesday.
