UK 100 called to open +26 points this morning at 6848. Asia took the lead from European and US stock markets, as shares climbed to three-week highs as investors were optimistic on the upcoming earnings season, hoping to see further signs of a global recovery. The latest US job openings report showed that vacancies rose to a two-year high whilst hiring had its biggest gain in 9 months. This was on top of an already buoyant market that had risen on increased COVID-19 vaccinations and additional government stimulus. The IMF rose its growth forecasts for the US to 6% this year from 5.5% on a brighter looking outlook. Crude rose on prospects for stronger global economic growth amid a report that showed crude inventories in the US fell in the week ending April 2nd. Brent was up 0.5% to $63.08 whilst US Crude was up 0.5% to $59.65
