FTSE to open at 7,329 (-11 pts)
Wall Street posted its biggest one-day gain since March yesterday as fears over the severity of the Omicron variant subsided, and Chinese authorities showed a willingness to stimulate the country’s slowing economy.
Asian stocks have had a mixed session with Japanese stocks continuing Wall Street’s rally, but Chinese stocks lagging due to news that Beijing will tighten rules for tech companies seeking foreign funding.
|S&P 500||+2.07%||Bullish for UK stocks|
|Hang Seng||-0.02%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|Gold||+0.35%||Bearish for UK stocks|
|AUD/JPY||-0.04%||Neutral for UK stocks|
|US 10yr Yield||+2.73%||Bearish for UK stocks|
The strong drive higher continued to gather momentum yesterday and prices are now back within 70 points of their November highs.
This has been a near vertical 300 point rally from last week’s lows, so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the market take a pause for breath and consolidate sideways for a few sessions.
