Morning Report – Wednesday 3rd November
FTSE to open at 7,250 (-25 pts)
Wall Street edged to another record close yesterday – posting it’s fourth consecutive day of gains.
All eyes will be on the US Federal Reserve this evening as it is widely expected to begin tapering its $120bn monthly asset purchases…
The taper is priced-in, but what is less certain is how much the Fed will shift their focus towards surging inflation and the possibility of it lasting longer than anticipated. A more hawkish tone would no doubt see US stocks pullback from their record highs.
|S&P 500||+0.37%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.52%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|Gold||-0.38%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||+0.18%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||-0.81%||Bullish for UK stocks|
Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE give back much of Monday’s gains – leaving the market just above broken resistance and the steepest ascending trendline (see chart below).
The FTSE needs to hold above the broken resistance zone in order to rule out the possibility of a bearish ‘fakeout’ scenario.
