Morning Report – Thursday 12th May
FTSE to open at 6,949 (-55 pts)
We mentioned at the start of the the week that investors were nervous ahead of Wednesday’s US inflation data, and it turns out they had good reason to be…
The US Consumer Price Index jumped to a 13-year high – ramping up pressure on the Fed to tighten monetary policy. The data saw US 10yr Yield put in its biggest one day rally for several months.
Our risk barometer has a distinctly bearish feel to it, and Europrean stocks are set for a bearish open.
|S&P 500||-2.14%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-1.27%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.28%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.08%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||+5.3%||Bearish for UK stocks|
During yesterday’s session, the FTSE futures only started to succumb to US selling pressure after the FTSE cash market’s 4.30pm close.
This leaves the market set to open back near last week’s swing lows. As mentioned yesterday, given the strength of the sell-off at the start of the week, a bounce-back to new trend highs looks unlikely in the short-term.
