Morning Report – Thursday 6th January

FTSE to open at 7,440 (-77 pts)

A rotation out of US Tech stocks saw the Nasdaq close down more than 3% on Wednesday with a clear focus on speculative loss-making tech stocks…

The move is already being dubbed the ‘spec tech wreck’ as the markets move to price-in the impact of tightening monetary policy from the Fed following a hawkish set of FOMC minutes.

We’re also seeing this play out in the bond market with the yield on US 10yr government bonds touching a six-month high yesterday.

Overnight, Asian stocks have been mixed with the Nikkei mirroring the drop on Wall Street, whereas the Hang Seng has stabilised after a strong sell-off earlier in the week.

S&P 500-1.94%Bearish for UK stocks
Hang Seng+0.20%Neutral for UK stocks
Gold-0.50%Bullish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY-0.99%Bearish for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield+60ptsBearish for UK stocks
Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE has undergone a pullback from highs, but the market is showing clear strength relative to US stocks.

Prices have pulled back into the November highs and the FTSE bulls will be looking for broken resistance to provide support.
