Morning Report – Tuesday 19th July
FTSE to open at 7,186 (-37 pts)
Whilst the US dollar weakened for a second consecutive session, stocks on Wall Street could not maintain their relief rally as Apple said it plans to slow hiring and spending growth next year.
Asian stocks have mirrored the weakness on Wall Street, with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng currently -0.58% lower. Renewed fears about outbreaks of COVID-19 in China and upcoming European Central Bank meetings are weighing on sentiment in the region.
|S&P 500||-0.84%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.58%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.03%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.44%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||+71pts||Bearish for UK stocks|
Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE erase its early morning gains to close back within the inside day pattern that formed on Friday.
This intra-day reversal has formed a bearish pin-bar candle, which when combined with the inside day pattern forms a bearish ‘fakeout’ pattern.
A break below yesterday’s lows should trigger a retest of the inside day lows.
