Morning Report – Wednesday 9th June
FTSE to open at 7,079 (-16 pts)
For the second consecutive session, US stocks tread water just below all-time highs as bond yields continue to move lower following last Friday’s worse-than-expected non-farm payrolls – soothing the markets inflationary fears.
In Asia, the FT is reporting that a Covid-19 outbreak in southern China is “curbing activity at some of the country’s biggest ports, stoking fears that further disruption in international trade risk pushing up the price of its exports”. And stocks in Hong Kong are trading near two-week lows.

Yesterday’s price action saw the FTSE fail to break and close above swing resistance at 7,107. This has been followed by a small move lower on the futures overnight.
The market is now being funneled between the ascending trendline which has been in place since November and those horizontal swing highs.
