    The FTSE 100 is called to open slightly higher this morning but investor sentiment is likely to be cautious following the mixed performances on Wall Street and in Asia. Overnight we had domestic economic data from the RICS showing that the UK house price balance fell to +44 in September from +53 in August which was below forecast. The economic diary today also sees the Bank of England MPC interest rate decision announcement , the release of the latest US weekly jobless claims and this evening at 7.00pm a speech from the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney and the publication of the FOMC meeting minutes as well. Commodity prices are lower and on the foreign exchanges, the pound is slightly weaker against both the dollar and the euro but all the key currencies are within narrow trading ranges ahead of the Bank of England statement and Mark Carney's speech and US data announcements. ...

    European equities are set to start flat this morning as traders struggle for direction. Yesterday was a mixed day for Europe, what with the DAX higher, the CAC flat and the FTSE lower. Overnight hasnít provided any clarity both though as the US had a strong session with respectable gains whilst Asian markets have erased early gains and are now heading south. With the recent rally built on the assumption that the worldís central banks will help out with some more loose monetary policy, with the BoE and Fed releasing the minutes from their last meeting and an ECB meeting today, we could be about to find out that the bulls rally has been built on sand. ...

    European equities are set to start with gains this morning as the weak economic data continues to roll in thick and fast around the globe. It looks like the logic of bad news is good is here again and the bulls are naturally sniffing some more loose central bank policy. All this recent chatter that has been seeping into the mainstream media about negative interest rates looks like itís gotten traders thinking itís a real possibility.

    Stocks across Europe and U.S rallied on Wednesday following on from a strong session in Asia overnight. The rally also marked the last trading day for Q3 2015 which saw the biggest quarterly loss in four years. The Dow Jones rallied 234 during yesterdayís session to close as 16,284. ...

    European equities are set to start with gains this morning as we get a dead cat bounce before we plunge though this yearís lows. Thereís nothing bullish out overnight to warrant this morningís rise, just sellers and short sellers getting a little hesitant about hitting the button. Make no mistake, weíre heading lower; itís just a case of when. The effects of Chinaís implosion are being felt as far and wide as Redcar, due to China's slowing industrial appetite for steel and their subsequent dumping of over production on the world market, all the way to Las Vegas as the former Chinese high rollers can only afford to play at the dollar stakes tables. All the pundits are suggesting attention is on this Fridays Non-Farm Payrolls and its influence on Octobers Fed meeting, but what traders should really be focusing on is Thursdayís Chinese Manufacturing data and its effect on the October Chinese Q3 GDP figures, itís going to get messy!! ...

    European equities are set to slump on the open as they hurtle towards the technical definition of a bear market. With most of the European indices only another awful session away from crossing the 20% decline mark, the flight to safety trade is certainly on this morning. Chinese economic woes are still the main driver and it looks as though things are intensifying if anything. With one of the global economyís pillars wobbling, itís only natural for everyone else to fear for their own stability.

    Stocks continued to tumble on Monday as the Dow Jones industrial average fell over 300 points. The Dow is on track for its third consecutive quarterly loss. The Fedís decision to keep the base rate unchanged last week has left an aura of doubt with matters not helped by continuing weakness in China. ...

    European equities are set to slump on the open tracking an evening sell off in the states on Friday and overnight weakness in Asia. Europeís initially positive start to Friday already seemed miss placed with some pundits putting it down to Janet Yellenís optimistic take of the US economy. However, with a rate hike practically assured some time before the end of the year, markets have has to reassess their earlier reasoning, and instead arenítí liking the fact that consumer and business are going to get a little tighter in the pocket just in time for Christmas.

    Friday was a mixed day of trading in the U.S which saw biotech stocks struggling further while financial companies rallied. The Dow Jones rallied 0.7 percent to close at 16,314.

Thereís nothing particularly bullish out overnight, in fact Asian markets have recommenced their sell off and Janet Yellen has soured the mood by practically confirming that a rate hike will be coming before year end. Itís not so much an influx of buyers thatís nudging markets higher this morning, weíre only parring some of yesterdayís losses; itís more the case that as we test the recent lows short sellers are becoming a little tetchy. ...

    European equities are set to start little changed as sentiment remains mired in indecision. Yesterdayís gains could be summed up as drifting, no conviction and not likely to last. Until we get some clarity on the direction of Chinaís economy and US monetary policy, expect markets to remain listless.

    U.S stocks closed up Monday recovering from an end of week sell of that was triggered by the Fedís decision to halt a rise in interest rates. The Dow gained 175 points being spurred on by stronger than expected home resales with investors putting the uncertainty of global growth behind them. ...

On the eve of the Fed rate decision, It looks as though the bulls are betting that the hawks will have to wait a little longer for lift off following yesterdayís weak US inflation data.

There are too many scenarios and combinations of event s this evening to make an educated guess with any accuracy with a probability above random, so if you donít have an appetite for volatility; then maybe you should stay out of this one. ...
