The S&P moved lower yesterday despite bumper earnings from Microsoft and Google parent Alphabet. Energy stocks were the biggest losers as oil prices retreated from their recent highs.

Looking ahead, we have a stacked corporate and economic calendar with the ECB’s rate decision and policy statement along with key earnings updates from the likes of Lloyds and Royal Dutch Shell.

The FTSE tread water near it’s breakout highs yesterday – forming its narrowest daily range in over seven sessions.
