Morning Report – Thursday 16th June
FTSE to open at 7,240 (-33 pts)
The Fed made its largest rate hike since 1994 yesterday, upping its benchmark policy rate by 0.75 percentage points to combat accelerating inflation.
Whilst tightening monetary policy is typically bearish for stocks, Wall Street rallied yesterday as Fed Chair Jay Powell said large rate rises would not be common in his press conference.
All eyes will now be on the Bank of England with Governor Andrew Bailey set to announce a fifth consecutive rate hike.
