FTSE 100 called to open -40pts at 7345

FTSE 100: 2-month, 4-hourly

Markets Overview: (Source: Bloomberg, FT, Reuters, DJ Newswires)

FTSE 100 Index called to open -40pts at 7350, the current sell-off extending last night to test late July lows and 3-month rising support at 7340. After an overnight pause, in a tight 7345-7555 range, bulls need a breakout and rally back towards 7400 (oversold 4-hourly RSI, supportive 200-day moving average just below). Bears very simply require a breach of 7340 to kick off another down-leg towards 7300. Bearish flag? Watch levels: Bullish 7355, Bearish 7340.

Calls for another negative open (third on the trot) comes after a US equity selloff, inspired by fresh Trump aggression towards North Korea, made for a weak session in Asia overnight. It also saw the VIX post its 8th biggest spike in history, regaining levels last seen around the US presidential election, and resulted in fresh preference for bonds and gold over equities and metals, and added to an already weak oil price.

Note the S&P and Nasdaq closing below their 50-day moving averages for the first time since April, geopolitics weighing along with earnings from retailers Kohl’s and Macy’s and Oil price declines hurting Energy. FTSE corporate news this morning includes Old Mutual announcing a 37% rise in H1 profits, a 32% dividend hike that will please income seekers and says it’s on-track to float two of its biggest businesses next year.

Gold has posted fresh 2-month highs of $1289, extending the bullish flag towards $1320 that we have been highlighting. Whilst back from overnight highs support remains valid at $1284 thanks to geopolitical jitters and a US dollar trading back from August highs.

Oil prices have given nearly of their recent gains, Brent test support levels of the past two weeks ($51.4), US Crude having gone even lower to test levels last traded late July ($48.3). This after a revival of global supply glut concerns trumped this week’s bullish US inventory reports.

In focus today will be US Consumer Price Inflation (CPI) and Average Earnings (1.30pm) prints for July. We do have more July final CPI prints from the Eurozone (France, Spain & Italy adding to Germany this morning), but as these are finals, we expect limited deviation from the flash estimates.

US CPI is expected to have picked up in July, the headline metric back to April highs of 0.,2% after a negative May and flat June, while the annual rate picks up from June’s 1.6% 8-month low. The perhaps more critical Core measure is forecast to have picked up in July but unchanged yearly.

More interesting may be Average Earnings growth which, rather like CPI, remains stubbornly below the Fed’s 2% inflation target. Any major improvement on June’s earnings growth of 0.9% (hourly) or 1.2% (weekly) could spice things up if taken as representing inflationary pressures that increase the odds of a another US interest rate hike. Watch any USD move that could have a knock on for GBP and EUR, and thus the FTSE and DAX.

After yesterday’s Oil price sell-off on fresh oversupply concerns, this morning’s Monthly IEA report (9am) will be of interest. Will it help, or merely add fuel to the current fire?

Back in Europe, French CPI (7.45am) is expected to confirm a drop into deflation (-0.3%), its worst since July last year, while the 12-month pace stagnates at 0.7%. Spain (8am) should confirm CPI fell sharply in July (to -0.7%), extending a reversal from 1.0% 6-month highs in April, following a flat May/June. Annually its rate should hold around 1.5%.

Italy (9am) may confirm a return to growth after May’s sharp drop, although the annual rate may have cooled further to 1.1%, its slowest since January. Eurozone inflation thus remains very mixed, a thorn in ECB President Draghi’s side. Watch the EUR this morning.

Speakers this afternoon include the Fed’s Kaplan (neutral) around lunchtime while the dovish Kashkari (dovish) talks mid-afternoon. As FOMC voters, both have potential to move the USD, impacting both GBP and EUR, and thus the FTSE and DAX.

For any help you may require placing trades or in terms of market information, put a call in to our trading floor – it’s all part of the service.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

I am very happy with the service I get from Accendo Markets and in particular Jermaine Bedlow. He is very professional and pleasant to speak to and this counter for a lot. The only problem I do have is with the Accendo trading platform as the platform will not stay open for more than about two minutes on my works computer before it shuts down, but it is fine on my home laptop.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.
