Morning Report – Wednesday 12th May
FTSE to open at 6,929 (-19 pts)
It’s been a quiet Asian session, as markets tread water ahead of today’s US inflation data (see calendar below).
As can be seen from our risk barometer (below), the S&P continued its recent weakness, while other asset classes are in neutral territory as we head into European trading.
|S&P 500||-0.87%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||+0.17%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.23%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.26%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-0.44%||Neutral for UK stocks|
The FTSE found support at last week’s swing lows – a level which coincides with the ascending trendline.
Given the strength of yesterday’s sell-off, probabilities are not in favour of swift bounce-back. Instead, we would expect to see some sideways consolidation near the trendline and the April swing lows at 6,850.
