"Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen may be gearing up to raise short-term interest rates at March's FOMC policy meeting after all. While Fund Futures had suggested a June rise was more likely, her optimistic note during yesterday's semi-annual testimony to Congress nevertheless meant that equity traders took the news in their stride while the US$ spike higher. Suggesting that it would be 'unwise' to delay, she painted a largely upbeat picture of the U.S. economy in her first congressional testimony since President Trump took office, noting employment gains in recent months plus higher wage growth, was "a further indication that the job market is tightening". Inflation meanwhile has moved closer to the Fed's 2% objective, while the December personal-consumption expenditures price index moved up 1.6% from a year earlier, a rate last seen in September 2014. Similarly in the UK, yesterday's January CPI figures confirmed the fastest annual rate in 30 months, driven by the Pound's tumble following Brexit, although the figure itself emerged marginally below expectations and led to a minor sell-off of Sterling as rate hike expectations receded somewhat. That said, an increasing school of thought suggests UK inflation may be allowed to rise above the BoE's own 2% CPI target and 'run hot' through most of 2017, assuming it does not breach the 3% level, for fear of Governor Carney otherwise stifling economic momentum during forthcoming Brexit negotiation. The overnight markets accordingly all made further convincing gains, with all principal US markets rising similarly, led by financials and tech stocks as both the S&P500 and NASDAQ chalked-up their sixth consecutive upward moves. Asia went even further, with the Nikkei initially leading the surge as US$:Yen touched a new monthly high, although most other bourse in the region rapidly caught up to close with similar 1% or thereabouts gains, leaving only the Shanghai Composite to end in the negative as fears regarding looming US protectionist measures were resurrected once again. Wednesday will see another large batch of macro releases, with the UK due to detail Average Earnings and Unemployment, while the EU publishes its December Trade Balance and the US delivers its Retail Sales and CPI. No significant earnings or trading updates are anticipated from UK corporates this morning, although some second-liners like Animalcare Group (ANCR.L), NEX Group (NXG.L), QinetiQ Group (QQ..L) and Tracsis (TRCS.L) are scheduled. In the absence of other significant news, London is set to follow the international trend, rising broadly from this morning's opening with the FTSE-100 seen up 20 to 25 points in early trade." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

"It was always highly unlikely that the Supreme Court would reverse the judgement made by the High Court. Theresa May will nevertheless be pretty happy with yesterday’s final ruling that sets a far-reaching constitutional precedent and upholds parliamentary sovereignty. The justices held back from insisting that the devolved administrations would have a vote or a say on the process - which otherwise would have created a potential nightmare scenario for her government. Given also that the Supreme Court held back from explicit instruction, in particular a provision for potentially endless calls for documentation, possibly as early as tomorrow ministers will put forward what is expected to be an extremely short piece of legislation in the hope of getting MPs to approve it, possibly within a fortnight. So, although certain members from Labour or the Liberal Democrats may seek their pound of flesh, the expectation that the Prime Minister will be triggering Article 50 by the end of March remains. Given that the vote is reserved for Westminster, however, there is still a price to pay; while the Scottish Parliament cannot block London’s decision, the leader of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, has already stated that she will ask her ministers to take a separate vote. As this looks almost certain to be for Remain, the case will clearly be built for another Referendum and, as Theresa May knows only too well, the legacy of being the Prime Minister that ‘broke up the Union’ is not one to savour. Meanwhile, ‘man of action’ Donald Trump regained market’s confidence once again, with the US$ moving higher as traders shunning the Euro on revived talk of a prospective Eurozone implosion during 2017. All three principal US indices ended positive, led by the NASDAQ, but with the Dow Jones also back once again within 100 points of the psychologically important 20,000 level. Asia followed suit across the board, with the Nikkei leading regional gains as the Yen pivoted back against a stronger Dollar, while China move modestly higher having confirmed its central bank pumped a record weekly RMB1.13tr into the domestic money markets, as the bank tightened bias by hiking rates on its medium-term lending facility by 10bp ahead of the week-long holiday period that begins on Saturday. A comment from the ECB’s top official, Lautenschlaeger, regarding his expectation the €2.3tr bond-purchase programme can soon be expected to wind down will likely create some volatility amongst Continental bourses during this morning’s opening, although London itself is seen higher with the FTSE-100 expected to rise some 25 points during early trade. The UK is expected to release its CBI Industrial Trends Survey at 11:00hrs this morning, which will be followed this afternoon by the US House Price Index for November and MBS Mortgage Applications. UK corporates expected to provide earnings or trading updates include McCarthy & Stone (MCS.L), Restaurant Group (RTN.L), Santander (BNC.L), Time Out (TMO.L) and WH Smith (SMWH.L). Investors will also be listening keenly for any further fall out regarding BT Group’s (BT.A.L) disclosure from yesterday regarding fraud in Italian operations, while anticipating this afternoon’s ABC broadcast of Donald Trump’s first televised interview since taking office.
