Morning Report – Wednesday 7th April

FTSE to open at 6,852 (+28 pts)

US stocks took a well-earned pause for breath yesterday following a burst to new highs earlier in the week. While US bond yields have continued to retreat from highs – cooling the markets inflationary concerns.

Asian stocks have had a mixed session with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng erasing some of Monday’s gains and the Japanese Nikkei in small positive territory.

S&P 500-0.10%Neutral for UK stocks
Hang Seng-0.72%Bearish for UK stocks
Gold-0.03%Neutral for UK stocks
AUD/JPY-0.14%Neutral for UK stocks
US 10yr Yield-0.11%Neutral for UK stocks
Regency Risk Barometer Snapshot

The FTSE broke and closed above the key resistance level at 6,800 that we’ve highlighted for several months. This is clearly a bullish sign and has potentially opened the door for a retest of the New Year highs at 6,961.

We still need to be on guard for a false breakout scenario, whereby the market closes back below resistance during today’s session – creating a ‘two-bar fakeout’ pattern. However, probabilities favour the long side, and if we see strength during today’s opening rotation then this could lead to an acceleration in buying pressure.
