Morning Report – Wednesday 13th October
FTSE to open at 7,108 (-22 pts)
Wall Street continued to weaken yesterday as last week’s poor set of non-farms payrolls continued to ramp-up fears of stagflation (stagnating growth and high inflation).
It’s been a quiet Asian session due to markets being closed for Chinese Chung Yeung Festival, and the Japanese Nikkei 225 index has traded slightly lower at -0.30%.
This morning’s UK manufacturing and industrial production data came in ahead of expectations, showing a 0.5% and 0.8% gain respectively for August.
|S&P 500||-0.24%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||+0.00% (closed)||Neutral for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.14%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.19%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-2.42%||Bullish for UK stocks|
For the second consecutive session, the FTSE rallied from intra-day lows only to be halted by short-term resistance.
Yesterday’s range was fully contained within Monday’s range – forming an ‘inside day’ pattern on the futures. This is quite a large inside day and therefore lacks an intensity of price compression, but it may indicate that the market is building for a break of resistance.
