Morning Report – Tuesday 18th January

FTSE to open at 7,598 (-13 pts)

Asian stocks have weakened overnight as U.S. Treasury yields hit their highest level in almost two years with investors weighing the risks of a Fed policy rate rise as soon as March.

While oil hit seven-year highs overnight over concerns about supply shocks after Yemen’s Houthi group attacked the United Arab Emirates.

Brent crude, the international benchmark for oil broke past the $86.68 highs reached in October 2018 and November 2021 – adding further pressure to the inflationary backdrop.
