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

FTSE 100 Index called to open +10pts at 7425, challenging yesterday’s breakdown of key October support. Bulls need a break above falling highs resistance at 7450 to reverse the current downtrend. Bears require a breach of 7400 to extend the decline from 7 Nov highs. Watch levels: Bullish 7450, Bearish 7400.

Calls for a positive start come despite disappointing Chinese data that resulted in a negative session in Asia overnight where dual-listed FTSE Miners fell around 1% on Australia’s ASX 1% and Brent Crude oil retreated further from recent $64 highs to hurt Energy. This adds to the fresh UK political jitters that hit the FTSE yesterday, and while GBP has stabilised at $1.310 it finds itself under renewed pressure at £0.893 vs EUR.

In corporate news this morning ITV revenues buoyed by Studio strength offsetting Broadcast & Online weakness; reiterates FY guidance. Smiths Group backs FY 2018 Guidance. Tesco welcomes CMA provisional unconditional clearance for merger with Booker. Land Securities H1 profits +5.2%, ups dividend by 10%, but warns of Brexit uncertainty.

Vodafone raises financial outlook. Centrica expands connected home business into Italy. Bovis Homes trading in-line, solid demand, backs FY targets. McCarthy & Stone says profits fall, impacted by age and mix of units sold and increased incentives and build costs. FirstGroup swings to first half pre-tax loss on Puerto Rico hurricane.

US equity markets finished higher across the board to start the week, however gains were capped after General Electric suffered its worst day since April 2009 following the halving of its dividend and cut to guidance. The Dow Jones underperformed as GE shares fell 7.2% over the course of the session, offsetting gains for heavyweights McDonalds and Boeing. The S&P 500 closed 0.1% stronger as toymaker Mattel surged 20%, while the majority of FAANG stocks led the Nasdaq higher.

Crude Oil benchmarks have retreated overnight as Chinese macroeconomic data disappointed, which has seen Brent Crude fall below $63 a barrel for the first time since last Monday. US Crude has also pulled back from recent 2-year highs, however is holding above $56.5 as the US dollar continues to retreat from late October’s 3-month highs.


Gold has found support at $1276 following Friday’s $10 fall, with rising lows since early November helping to support the precious metal. The US dollar will be in focus for Gold traders today with a multitude of US central banker speaking over the course of the day at a variety of events.


In focus today will be a duo of UK-centric events. First, at 9:30am, UK Inflation prints are expected to accelerate in October to their highest levels in five years. Bank of England Governor Mark Carney will need to ready his pen to write a letter to the Chancellor as headline CPI is expected at 3.1% (3.0% prev.), while the Core print rises to 2.8% (2.7% prev.).

After which, MPs in the House of Commons will debate the contentious EU Withdrawal Bill from 11am onwards, the sprawling legislation that would allow the Government to write a swathe of EU laws into British laws with little oversight. Having conceded to allow MPs a vote on the final deal, albeit what is seemingly a binary ‘yes or no’ decision, PM Theresa May and Brexit Minister David Davis will be hoping for a more conciliatory tone in parliament. Let’s see if pro-European MPs on both sides of the House have received the memo.

A range of Central Bank speakers, including a star-studded line-up in Frankfurt, could move FX markets today. The headline event at the ECB sees Fed Chair Janet Yellen, BoE Governor Mark Carney, ECB President Mario Draghi and BoJ Governor Kuroda all feature on the same panel (10am), discussing policy effectiveness, accountability and reputation.

Other speakers include the Fed’s Evans (8:05am) and Bullard (1:15pm), the ECB’s Lautenschlager (9am) and Coeure (1:15pm), BoE FPC member Kohn (3:30pm) and colleague Cunliffe (5:30pm), before the Fed’s Bostic (6:05pm) rounds off a busy day for central bankers.

Macro data elsewhere includes Eurozone GDP (10am), expected unchanged, German ZEW Surveys (also 10am), seen improving in November, US NFIB Small Business Optimism (11am) recovering from September’s 11-month low before US Producer Price Inflation (1:30pm) is expected to retreat marginally.

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.
