Morning Report – Thursday 23rd September
FTSE to open at 7,126 (+43 pts)
So much for a taper tantrum! Wall Street rallied yesterday despite Fed chair Jay Powell signalling the US central bank could start withdrawing its stimulus programme as early as November.
New economic projections showed a majority of Fed officials expect to raise rates at least three times in 2023, and a growing number expect an earlier rate rise in 2022.
Stock markets shrugged off the hawkishness and the S&P managed to close back above key support, and Asian stocks have followed suit.
