Morning Report – Thursday 15th July
FTSE to open at 7,074 (-17 pts)
Yesterday’s testimony from Fed Chair Jerome Powell kept to his unwavering stance that the current levels of high inflation would be transitory…
Mr Powell reiterated the central bank’s commitment to maintaining its stimulus until there was more certainty around the strength of the economic recovery. The yield on U.S. 10yr treasuries dropped back on the comments while the reaction on the S&P 500 was relatively muted.
This morning’s UK unemployment data came in slightly higher than exceptions, with the 3-month unemployment rate at 4.8% versus 4.7% expected.
|S&P 500||-1.13%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-1.10%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.54%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.18%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||+73pts||Bearish for UK stocks|
Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE move lower from Tuesday’s small-range candle. We would expect to see a retest of the support area created by the ascending trendline (gold dotted line) and the cluster of swing lows just above 7,000.
