FTSE to open at 7,089 (+8 pts)
Equities are treading water ahead of today’s ECB rate decision and policy statement.
Whilst European inflation is less than half that in the US, traders are still trying to calculate when the ECB will start tapering its bond buying programme.
Only minimal changes are expected by the market given Europe’s ongoing battle with the pandemic and the fragility of the recovery.

The FTSE continued to be compressed and funneled yesterday, with the market rallying from its long-term ascending trendline whilst respecting swing resistance.
It would appear that the market is gearing up for a burst of directional movement – given the uptrend and ‘ascending triangle’-type pattern which is forming, the probabilities are tipped in favour of the bulls.
