Morning Report – Monday 9th May
FTSE to open at 7,375 (-14 pts)
Friday’s non-farm payrolls accelerated by 428,000 in April, more than the 391,000 expected and Average Hourly Earnings growth came in at 5.5% YoY as expected…
The reaction on Wall Street was relatively muted with the S&P 500 index edging back down into its February swing lows as the yield on US 10yr Treasury’s continued to march higher.
Overnight in Asia, the Hang Seng is closed for Buddha’s Birthday, while Japan’s Nikkei 225 mirrored Friday’s losses in US and European markets, dropping -2.53%.
|S&P 500||-0.57%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||CLOSED||Neutral for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.60%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.51%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||+92pts||Bearish for UK stocks|
Friday’s price action saw the FTSE break and close decisively below the wedge consolidation pattern that we identified last week.
This bearish break lower has set the scene for a retest of the April swing lows at 7,296.
