FTSE to open at 7,280 (+104 pts)

Stocks on Wall Street rallied from lows yesterday as Ukraine’s President Zelensky indicated progress in the peace talks…

In a video address late last night, Zelensky revealed “the positions in the negotiations already sound more realistic.”

Overnight in Asia, Chinese stocks have put in a strong relief rally on rising hopes Beijing will roll out more economic stimulus.

Looking ahead, markets will be firmly focused on the US Federal Reserve, who are expected to raise rates for the first time since 2018 this evening.
