Morning Report – Thursday 28th April

FTSE to open at 7,484 (+58 pts)

Stocks on Wall Street ended yesterday’s session in mildly positive territory after strong earnings from Microsoft and Visa.

While the euro dropped to its weakest since 2017 after Russia halted gas supplies to Bulgaria and Poland.

In Asia, stocks have rallied from lows in Hong Kong and Japan as China pledged further monetary support to its stuttering economy.

It’s a busy day for corporate earnings with UK banks Barclays and Standard Chartered reporting Q1 numbers, along with trading updates from Glencore, Unilever and Smith & Nephew.

Hang Seng+0.92%Bullish for UK stocks
Gold-0.47%Bullish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY+1.12%Bullish for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield+105ptsBearish for UK stocks
Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE erase Tuesday’s losses entirely – forming a bullish ‘two-bar reversal’ pattern.

Should the market break and hold above yesterday’s highs during the opening rotation, then a rally back towards the broken support level at 7,536 looks the most probable scenario.
