"A nervous opening is expected this morning as investors attempt to assess the impact of President Trump being forced to take his Bill designed to replace Obamacare off the table, as the White House was forced to admit defeat in its first legislative priority on Capitol Hill. The withdrawal came despite desperate, last minute calls to lawmakers in the House of Representatives, raising serious questions regarding his ability to unify Republicans sufficiently to keep his pro-growth reforms from tax to infrastructure spending on the road. Tensions will remain high, as Wednesday the Administration’s attention turns his proposals to build a border wall between Mexico and the US. And, if that is not enough to worry about, the same day this week will also focus on a historic event, Theresa May triggering Article 50 and, in so doing, kick-off two years of divorce negotiations with the European Union. Although the Healthcare Bill was not formally withdrawn until after the US markets closed on Friday, doubts over its ability to succeed had already led to volatility, with the S&P500 falling 1.4%, its worst weekly decline of the year. After starting on the upside, the country’s three principal indices closed mixed in anticipation of Friday, with the NASDAQ ending positive helped by Micron Technologies while elsewhere oils and financials met gentle selling. With the new week’s market openings led by Asia this morning, however, more selling was evident with all major regional bourses trading in the red, led by Japan dropping over 1.5%, hitting its lowest point since early February as US$ falls were reflected in almost a 1% spike in the Yen, as the Euro also raced to almost a four-month high. Chinese equities remained weak despite reports the nation’s Industrial Profits had grown 31.5% in January-February, leaving both the Shanghai Composite and Hang Seng nursing minor losses. Recent good macro and political news that has bolstered European sentiment, helping an oversold STOXX 600 outperform, will be boosted further this morning on news that German Chancellor Angela Merkl’s conservatives scored a clear victory in the small state of Saarland, knocking optimism amongst centre-left challengers that changes in national sentiment could force her from office at September’s Federal Election. There is no UK macro data due for release today, although the EU provides personal loans and M3 Money Supply for February, followed later in the afternoon with the Dallas Fed Manufacturing Business Index from the US. The Fed’s Charles Evans and FOMC’s Robert Kaplan are both also due to make speeches. London’s major financial news today will the Bank of England’s scenarios for the latest of its stress tests, this time for the Royal Bank of Scotland which fails at its previous assessment. Elsewhere, UK corporates scheduled to release earnings or trading updates only include second liners, such as Inspired Energy (INSE.L), YouGov (YOU.L), GLI Finance (GLIF.L), and Gama Aviation (GMAA.L). Traders will also be seeking more information following OPEC apparently warning its Members regarding compliance with agreed oil-production cuts, following recent media reports of widespread cheating. Light sweet crude for May delivery traded down again on the NYME, despite suggestions of a further, deeper production cut being considered by the Organisation, amid reports that nearly two dozen non-American producers may limit output during the second half. London equities will be sold down from the opening this morning, with the FTSE-100 seen falling over 55 points in early trading. " - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

The overnight markets retreated somewhat as risk appetite appeared to wane. Traders are a little tired of waiting for the Fed’s much anticipated move that is due to take place with the FOMC meeting of March 14th- 15th, while also becoming a little wary of Mr Trump’s latest seemingly unfounded wiretapping allegations against his predecessor Barack Obama. Those wary of a Eurozone calamity potentially just around the corner were also frustrated by the pollsters’ favourite, Alain Juppé, yesterday stating “I confirm once and for all that I will not be candidate for the presidency of the Republic”, which seemingly points to a run-off election between Marine le Pen and Emmanuel Macron on May 7th, with all that could mean should the far-right National Front succeed to power. All three principal US indices fell for the second day, with financials the worst-performing sector in the S&P 500, losing 0.7% as one of the among the biggest sector winners in the postelection rally, bolstered by President Donald Trump's promises to enact pro-business policies, gave back some of their past six consecutive weeks of gains. U.S. government bonds meanwhile slipped as investors anticipated the coming Fed move, taking yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note to 2.494%, from 2.492% on Friday. Asia by comparison ended mix to firmer, with the ASX reversing early declines to trade up even though the mining-heavy index was weighed down by softer commodity prices, hitting the like of BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto; elsewhere, the two main Chinese indies firmed fractionally, leaving just the Nikkei to close with minor losses as safe haven investors bought Yen while shorting the Euro, mindful that recent economic data may provide the ECB with the excuse it needs to commence tapering of its huge bond-buying programme during the second quarter. UK Chancellor, Phillip Hammond’s first and final spring budget, due at 12:30hrs on Wednesday, is not expected to show any fireworks. Calm confidence, no give-aways and raised economic growth expectations are now much anticipated, with him expected to keep most of his ‘powder dry’ in anticipation of heightened uncertainty as the government prepares to invoke Article 50 by the end of the month. The BRC retail sales figures released first thing this morning were a little disappointing, falling back in February, with annualised LFL down 0.4%; release of the Halifax House Price Index is also due later this morning, with the EU also publishing its Q4’2016 GDP numbers followed by US Trade Balance figures and release of the Redbook this afternoon. But the most important single data-bite of the week will undoubtedly be this Friday US Jobsdata, given that strong numbers will almost certainly underwrite a move by the Fed. UK corporates due to provide earnings or trading updates include Direct Line (DLG.L), Just Eat (JE..L), Intertek (ITRK.L), PureCircle (PURE.L), PaddyPower Betfair (PPB.L), McCarthy & Stone (MCS.L) and SQS (SQS.L). London equities have opened marginally higher this morning, with the FTSE-100 trading 7 points up at 08:23.

"The global bond markets saw another major sell-off yesterday, with the 30-year US T-bill yield rising above 3% for the first time since January. This is weighing the implication of the President-elect's wholly unorthodox policy proposals, the general expectation that Yellen will go ahead with the first Fed rate hike since 2006 in December and a growing expectation that Trump will champion an international reversal in the current fiscal-monetary mix of western economies. A looser fiscal policy together with a harder monetary policy, of course, demands a much-diluted version of present 'central bank independence' for whom the main proponents, Donald Trump and Theresa May, could well be the first to move toward subverting the system through the appointment of politically compliant governors to replace the conservative academic postings of the past couple of decades. So has 'Trumpism' started to be priced in? After the hostile takeover, might the populist outsider simply surround himself with insiders? Some optimists seem to believe in this rosy scenario. The Dow Jones inched up to its third consecutive record close yesterday after the Fed's Jeffrey Lacker noted in a speech that fiscal stimulus 'would bolster the case for raising rates' while, by comparison, the NASDAQ drifted lower on continuing concerns over tax imposition proposed on their international cash piles. Asia ended mix to fractionally down, avoiding the broad sell-off seen amongst emerging markets, as their currencies rallied marginally against the US$. Today the UK is due to publish monthly inflation figures, while the Eurozone will release GDP data. Being deep in the results season, earnings or trading updates are expected from the likes of BTG (BTG.L), Card Factory (CARD.L), Crest Nicholson (CRST.L), easyJet (EZJ.L), Enterprise Inns (ETI.L), First Group (FGP.L), Hayward Tyler (HAYT.L), Land Securities (LAND.L), McCarthy & Stone (MCS.L), Premier Foods (PFD.L) and Vodafone (VOD.L). Investors will also be listing out for more details from Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York, regarding his overnight suggestion that defeating ISIS will be an early focus of Donald Trump's foreign policy. The FTSE-100 is seen rising 10 or so pints in early trading." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst
