Morning Report – Thursday 17th February

FTSE to open at 7,580 (-24 pts)

Yesterday’s FOMC minutes indicated that some Fed policymakers were cautious about the risks of damaging markets and the wider economy by tightening policy too quickly…

The less slightly less hawkish tone to the minutes prompted a mild fightback from the S&P, taking the market back into small positive territory for the session.

While overnight in Asia, stocks have tread water with the Hang Seng flat on the session and the Nikkei 225 in mild negative territory.

S&P 500+0.09%Neutral for UK stocks
Hang Seng+0.02%Neutral for UK stocks
Gold+0.30%Bearish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY-0.17%Neutral for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield-2 ptsNeutral for UK stocks
