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

FTSE 100 Index called to open +5pts at 7355, but back from overnight highs of 7370, checked by intersecting falling highs resistance since end-November. Bulls need a break back above 7370; Bears require a breach of yesterday late lows of 7336. Watch levels: Bullish 7370, Bearish 7336.

Calls for a tepid start come after a mixed finish on Wall St where Tech names were back in favour following the recent sell-off. This helped foster a more positive performance in Asia overnight (Japan outperforming on a weaker Yen), although China remained weak after an IMF report suggesting banks need to raise capital, reviving slowdown fears.

While a stronger USD on tax reforms hopes helps the FTSE via weaker reciprocal GBP, note oil remains under pressure (bearish flag?) following yesterday’s US gasoline inventory inspired sell-off. This  may keep a lid on the FTSE’s Energy heavyweights. Note Copper prices also pressured by a stronger USD, which may hamper FTSE Miners.

US equity markets finished mixed, with the Tech-focused Nasdaq outperforming as Facebook rallied after a broker upgrade, while both the Dow Jones and S&P 500 closed shy of breakeven. The Dow saw large cap Financial and Retail names weigh, while gains for Tech on the S&P were not enough to offset weakness amongst Energy names.

Crude Oil prices are little changed overnight following yesterday’s sharp price fall on the back of US fuel inventories rising almost four times more than expectations, offsetting a larger than expected draw in headline crude inventories. Brent holds above support at $61.6 after retreating from overnight highs of $62, while West Texas trades at $55.8 from overnight highs of $56.1.

Gold has fallen below $1260 for the first time since August, extending its December downtrend overnight as the US dollar trades a 2-week high.

In focus today will be UK Halifax House Prices (8.30am) expected to show slightly slower growth in November that may impact the FTSE Housebuilders and Retailers given the implications for consumer confidence. Thereafter, the final reading for Eurozone Q3 GDP is seen confirming slower sequential growth (average since Q4), but an acceleration on the annual pace (fastest since Q1’11),

In the run-up to tomorrow’s US Jobs report, there may be some interest in the Challenger Job cuts report for November, although the annual change in growth can be rather volatile. US Jobless Claims are forecast to show initial claims holding around their 8-week average, while continuing claims reverse all of last week’s jump, and more, to return to their 10-week average.

There’s always the chance that UK PM May has to dash to Brussels, and that we hear more on those tricky negotiations with the EU on Brexit. Otherwise, the only speakers are ECB President Mario Draghi (4pm), chairing a BIS press conference, and the Fed’s Dudley (1.30pm), making introductory remarks at a “Higher Education Financing and Costs and Returns of Higher Education” conference.

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.

My account manager Aymen has provided unbiased professional advice since day one. He allows me to trade at my own pace and is not pushy at all unlike most other brokers. Aymen is an extremely valuable asset to his Company and I would highly recommend Aymen and Accendo Markets.

Having an individual on call to help me, as a complete novice gives me the confidence to try trades to see what happens. The platform is very easy to use.

Whenever I have a query Accendo are always willing to help out with a patient answer. I especially mention Tom Robertson here whose valuable help has aided me in charting new waters. I really appreciated his call when a share of mine was doing well. Keep up the good work all.
