Morning Report – Thursday 27th January

FTSE to open at 7,380 (-90 pts)

“The committee is of a mind to raise the federal funds rate at the March meeting assuming that conditions are appropriate for doing so.”

The words of Fed Chair Jay Powell during yesterday evening’s press conference after the FOMC’s two-day meeting.

These hawkish comments that all but confirmed a March rate hike caused stocks on Wall Street to erase all of the gains it had made earlier in the day.

It has also caused Asian shares to drop sharply overnight, with the Niekkei 225 down more than -3% and the Hang Sneg down -2.51%.

S&P 500-0.15%Neutral for UK stocks
Hang Seng-2.51%Bearish for UK stocks
Gold-0.33%Bullish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY-0.55%Bearish for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield+101ptsBearish for UK stocks

The FTSE flirted with breaking out of the ‘inside day’ pattern that we identified yesterday.

However, hawkish comments from the Fed caused the futures to close back within Monday’s range, and a weak Asian session has seen the futures retreat back to the trendline.
