Morning Report – Tuesday 16th March

FTSE to open at 6,789 (+44 pts)

US stocks hit record highs yesterday with the S&P breaking above February highs, albeit in relatively cautious fashion.

While Asian stocks remain well below their February highs, the Hang Seng and other major indices in the region have had a mildly bullish session.

There is a feeling that equity markets are waiting for Wednesday’s Federal Reserve meeting to see how Chairman Jay Powell plans to tackle the rise in bond yields.

S&P 500+0.65%Bullish for UK stocks
Hang Seng+0.75%Bullish for UK stocks
Gold-0.22%Neutral for UK stocks
AUD/JPY-0.16%Neutral for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield+0.01%Neutral for UK stocks
Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE held below 6,800 resistance during yesterday’s session and dropped back towards Friday’s lows. This drop attracted buyers during the later half of US trading, and the FTSE futures are now back where they started the week, just below 6,800 resistance.

A break above yesterday’s highs during the opening rotation would be a very bullish sign and likely setup the market for a strong day. However, if we swiftly reject 6,800 in early trading, this would create an attractive short opportunity with stops above yesterday’s high.
