FTSE to open at 7,027 (+16 pts)

Big US tech stocks were hit the hardest yesterday as the S&P 500 fell to its lowest closing price since late July.

Facebook was among the index’s five worst-performers, dropping 4.9% as its main services suffered outages, while Apple, Microsoft and Amazon were also hit hard.

The Hang Seng continued to sell-off in early trading but has since recovered to trade flat on the day.

Meanwhile oil hit seven-year highs yesterday as OPEC refused to accelerate output increases despite growing global energy shortages.

Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE held short-term support yesterday, forming an ‘inside day’ in the process.

Given the high degree of randomness that comes with trading in the middle of a long-term range, there’s not much we can take from yesterday’s inside day other than the market is becoming tight with volatility starting to contract.
