Morning Report – Wednesday 25th May

FTSE to open at 7,533 (+49 pts)

The S&P’s two-day relief rally came to an end yesterday as supply chain woes and surging costs hurt corporate earnings and manufacturing output slowed.

Overnight in Asia, its been a quiet session with the Hang Seng and Nikkei 225 both treading water ahead of this evening’s FOMC minutes which should give some clues as to when the current US rate hike cycle may come to an end.  

While this morning’s German GDP data came in slightly ahead of expectations with the economy growing 3.8% in Q1 versus 3.7% expected.

S&P 500-0.81%Bearish for UK stocks
Hang Seng+0.17%Neutral for UK stocks
Gold-0.47%Bullish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY+0.16%Neutral for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield-96ptsBullish for UK stocks

Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE shake off early losses and push higher into the resistance zone…

We currently have multiple levels of resistance in play and we have seen this morning’s pre-open price action on the FTSE futures reject higher prices.
