Morning Report – Thursday 15th April

FTSE to open at 6,955 (+15 pts)

The S&P 500 posted it first negative close in six sessions yesterday…

After rallying to new highs earlier in the session, the S&P closed lower – signalling that the recent rally might be running out of steam.

Asian stocks have followed the S&P’s lead, posting small losses and our risk barometer has a mildly bearish tone as we enter European trading.

S&P 500-0.41%Bearish for UK stocks
Hang Seng-0.64%Bearish for UK stocks
Gold+0.47%Bearish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY-0.07%Neutral for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield-0.54%Neutral for UK stocks
Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE put in a strong move higher yesterday – rallying from the ascending trendline.

We’re now faced with another retest of the New Year highs. This is a key area of resistance for the FTSE and we’ll be watching closely to see if the market can break and hold above the 6,961 during today’s session.
