Morning Report – Tuesday 6th April
FTSE to open at 6,794 (+57 pts)
US stocks broke to new highs yesterday after data showed activity in America’s services sector accelerated at the fastest pace on record in March.
The ISM Services PMI, a closely tracked proxy for economic output, rose to 63.7 in March from 55.3 the month before – with the market expecting 59.
Asian stocks have followed the US higher – posting solid gains and setting a bullish tone to the start of European trading.

With the cash market closed yesterday, the FTSE futures attempted to broke above key resistance at 6,800, but this breakout could not be maintained and the prices closed back below resistance.
We’ve seen the same false breakout price action overnight and today will prove pivotal in determining whether the 6,800 barrier can finally be broken.
