Morning Report – Wednesday 26th May

FTSE to open at 7,035 (+6 pts)

The US housing data that we’ve seen so far this week has been a mixed bag, which has ultimately seen the US dollar continue to move towards lows for the year…

The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index rose 13.3% year-on-year to March – beating analyst estimates of 11.7%, but month-on-month new home sales for April disappointed at 0.863 million. We still have US mortgage approvals to come today, and US pending home sales on Thursday.

Stocks on Wall Street were lackluster yesterday, putting in a small ‘spinning top’ formation which can be seen as bearish. However, Asian stocks and currencies have had a solid session – taking European equity futures into mildly positive territory.

S&P 500-0.21%Bearish for UK stocks
Hang Seng+0.72%Bullish for UK stocks
Gold+0.17%Bearish for UK stocks
AUD/JPY+0.47%Bullish for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield-2.85%Bullish for UK stocks
Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE fail to hold above the top of the wedge, and instead retreat – closing near intra-day days and taking the market back to the bottom of the ever-tightening wedge pattern.

Along with the bottom of the wedge, we also have support from the ascending trendline which has formed since the turn of the year. We’ll be looking for the market to respond to one of these support levels today.
