Morning Report – Thursday 8th September

FTSE to open at 7,270 (+32 pts)

US stocks pushed higher on Wednesday, despite hawkish signals from Federal Reserve policy makers.

Thomas Barkin, president of the Fed’s Richmond branch, told the Financial Times that the central bank must lift interest rates “until such a time as we really are convinced that we put inflation to bed”.

Overnight in Asia, stocks have been mixed with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng moving lower. While the Nikkei 225 jumped more than 2% as Japan’s economy grew at a faster rate than forecast as an easing of Covid restrictions boosted spending.

All eyes will be on the ECB’s interest rate decision and monetary policy statement at lunchtime today.

Hang Seng-0.76%Bearish for UK stocks
