Markets Overview:

The UK 100 called to open +13 points at 7770.  The UK 100 looks set to open higher on Tuesday as investors awaiting the latest UK producer price inflation figures.  It was a mixed session on Wall Street yesterday, the Dow led the way at the close with a gain of 0.3% to finish at 33,734 points, but it was the only winner out of the three main indices, the S&P finished flat at 4,012 and the Nasdaq dropped 0.3% to close at 11,334 points.  Results from after the bell from Microsoft were mixed with earnings beating Street forecasts but revenues coming in below. Shares rose in after hours trading though.
