Morning Report – Thursday 7th April

FTSE to open at 7,584 (-4 pts)

Wall Street and Asian stocks have continued to weaken after a further hawkish rhetoric from US Federal Reserve…

Tuesday’s hawkish comments from Fed Governor Lael Brainard were followed on Wednesday by the release of minutes from the Fed’s March 15-16 meeting.

The minutes showed deepening concern among policymakers that inflation had broadened through the US economy – increasing the likelihood of aggressive interest rate rises.

After what looked to be a bullish breakout on Tuesday, the market fell back into consolidation mode yesterday…

We’re set to open at the mid-way point of yesterday’s range – an area which has seen the market chop sideways, albeit with an upwards bias for the last two weeks.
