Morning Report – Tuesday 16th August
FTSE to open at 7,527 (+18 pts)
Stocks on Wall Street continued their recent rally yesterday as traders start to price-in a slower pace of tightening from the Federal Reserve.
While Brent crude, the international benchmark for oil dropped as low as $92.78 a barrel yesterday amid fears of a global recession.
Overnight in Asia, the Hang Seng has weakened more than -1.70% despite shares in large Chinese property developers rallying amid reports that regulators could take further steps to support the crisis-stricken sector.
In Europe, this morning’s UK unemployment data edged up to 3.8% as the labour market shows signs of cooling.
|S&P 500||+0.40%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-1.78%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.06%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.01%||Neutral for UK stocks|

Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE fight back during afternoon trading – forming a bullish pin-bar candle inside of Friday’s range.
A break above Friday’s highs during the opening rotation could trigger a strong rally.
