FTSE to open at 7,106 (-45 pts)

The sell-off is tech focused with Tencent, Alibaba and Meituan among the markets biggest faller as regulatory fears resurfaced.
Beijing recently announced that regulation would be tightened on Chinese listings in the US – many of whom are tech companies.
The Asian sell-off has created a bearish backdrop to this morning’s European open.
