Morning Report – Tuesday 20th April

FTSE to open at 6,996 (-4 pts)

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index is flat on the session despite Japanese stocks being hit hard by the threat of more COVID-19 lockdowns.

Tokyo and Osaka may slide back into states of emergency due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases and Japans Nikkei 225 index is down nearly 2%.

Our risk barometer is in neutral territory and it looks as thought we’re in for a quiet start to European trading.

Gold-0.18%Neutral for UK stocks
AUD/JPY+0.92%Bullish for UK stocks

Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE pulled back from highs yesterday as some short-term profit taking set in.

Pullbacks are part and parcel of uptrend’s, but it is important that the FTSE holds above the broken New Year highs and the ascending trendline.
