Morning Report – Thursday 9th December

FTSE to open at 7,368 (+31 pts)

The British pound briefly sank to fresh lows for the year against the US dollar as Boris unveiled his ‘Plan B’ restrictions to curb the spread of Omicron.

However, stock markets continue to shrug off the impact of the new variant with European and US stocks edging higher yesterday and Asian shares have also moved higher overnight…

The Hang Seng is up more than 1% as this morning’s Chinese inflation data was relative stable with its consumer price index showing a 2.3% increase year-on-year.

S&P 500+0.31%Bullish for UK stocks
Hang Seng+1.08%Bullish for UK stocks
Gold+0.22%Bearish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY-0.05%Neutral for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield+3.23%Bearish for UK stocks
Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE tread water despite Boris’ Plan B…

As mentioned yesterday’s given the near vertical rally in the market over the last week, we would expect to see some form of sideways consolidation.
