Morning Report – Tuesday 11th May
FTSE to open at 7,038 (-86 pts)
A strong sell-off during the later half of US trading saw the S&P fall back towards last week’s lows yesterday, and the bearish sentiment has continued into Asia trading.
It’s being widely reported that the sell-off is being driven by inflationary fears, heightened by the upcoming release of Wednesday’s US consumer price index report.
|S&P 500||-1.04%||Bearish for UK stocks|

|Gold||-0.01%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.16%||Neutral for UK stocks|

The FTSE failed to continue its breakout move in some style yesterday, closing back below Friday’s lows and forming a bearish engulfing.
Overnight, we’ve seen the futures continue to sell-off, taking prices back to the broken swing highs – an area that may potentially provide some support.
