Morning Report – Tuesday 17th May

FTSE to open at 7,482 (+17 pts)

Stocks on Wall Street dropped back in choppy trading yesterday as weak economic data from China put further pressure on the global economic outlook.

However, Chinese stocks have bounced back overnight on rising optimism that Beijing will start to ease its regulatory crackdown on big tech.

While this morning’s UK unemployment data has come in ahead slightly ahead of expectations – the ILO Unemployment Rate increased 3.7% versus 3.8% expected and Average Hourly Earnings (ex bonus) came in at 4.2% – in-line with expectations.
