UK 100 is called to open down 10 points this morning at 7061. Asian stocks followed the lead from the US, and ended on a positive note. Signs of a strengthening US recovery upped bets for higher inflation and early tapering of Federal Reserve stimulus. Better than expected employment data yesterday, raised hopes for a strong set of non-farm payroll data today, with job growth likely to have picked up in May. Vaccinations seem to be easing the pandemics grip on the economy, but companies still face difficulty in hiring, with millions of unemployed at home due to childcare problems and generous unemployment checks. There was also some relief for corporations, as Joe Biden seems willing to compromise over a proposed tax hike.Crude oil retreated from two-year highs, as weekly crude stocks fell sharply while fuel inventories rose more than expected. Brent was down 0.4% at $71.06 a barrel whilst US Crude was down 0.3% at $68.58.
