"The Fed's Patrick Harker yesterday spelt out just how complex policy on interest rates has now become. Janet Yellen's own testimony this afternoon, which is seen as key to December's FOMC decision, will have to grapple with all the new uncertainties injected by the President-elect, ranging from regressive tax cuts, booming infrastructure spending, financial deregulation and cuts in federal spending. No easy task, even if the markets appear more convinced than ever that the first hike since 2006 will be delivered next month and that this will be the first of a series of such moves over the subsequent 18 or so months as inflation climbs. The recent phase of asset repricing, nevertheless, took a breather yesterday, with all principal markets making only fractional movements. The Dow Jones broke its record run to drift into the red as financials retrenched, while momentum in technology stocks meant the NASDAQ still managed to close modestly up. Asia also put in just marginal movements across the board, as oil prices went lower on weekly data detailing a large rise in inventories, while the Bank of Japan surprised traders with its plans to buy unlimited JGBs at fixed rates in its latest daily market operation. The latter, of course, being seen as it effort to ensure domestic rates do not find themselves shackled to the US T-bill's upward movements. Today, the UK is due to release retail sales figures while the CML provides mortgage lending data; Eurozone inflation numbers are also expected this morning. Clearly the principal event of the day, however, will be Janet Yellen's Testimony on Capitol Hill which is due to commence at 10:00hrs EST and likely overshadow speeches also due from the Fed's William Dudley and Lael Brainard; the US is due to release inflation, weekly jobless claims and export statistics this afternoon as well. Another busy day for UK corporates, with earnings or trading updates scheduled from the likes of CRH (CRH.L), Great Portland Estates (GPOR.L), Johnson Matthey (JMAT.L), Kier Group (KIER.L), Premier Oil (PMO.L), Royal Mail (RMG.L), Shanks (SKS.L), Ted Baker (TED.L), TT Electronics (TTG.L) and Watkin Jones (WJG.L). The FTSE-100 is expected to open virtually unchanged." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

Despite overnight markets rising again, Europe is more likely to see Brexit-related issues dominate early trading. The FTSE-100 is seen down around 20 points at the opening and ahead of the European Central Bank policy meeting that is due to take place later today. Still awaiting firm evidence of the impact of the UK's vote to leave the EU, the ECB is expected to keep its current €1.8tr stimulus measure unchanged despite President, Mario Draghi, having already suggested it has presented key risk that could knock as much as 0.5% off Eurozone economic growth over the next three years. Some economists, however, consider that any such a decision would be more a reflection of his lacking new options or ideas, rather than confidence that momentum is finally improving. A new caution that suggests clouds are gathering over the UK, comes from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors who released a survey this morning indicating commercial property brokers are now bracing for a downturn in real estate values and rents. The US markets meanwhile continued their long positive run, basking in dollar strength the Dow Jones achieving yet another record close, with all other principal indices also rising as technology stocks reversed Tuesday's sell off to see the NASDAQ put in the strongest individual performance. Asia was also up across the Board, with the Nikkei claiming back twice Wednesday's losses as the Yen hit a six-week low against the US$, dragging Chinese and Australian stocks behind it. Other than the ECB rate decision, the UK is expected to release retail sales and public sector finances data, while Theresa May continues her European tour visiting the French President, Francois Hollande. The corporate calendar is also quite busy, anticipating results or trading statements fromBabcock, Britvic, Daily Mail and General Trust, easyJet, Howden, Premier Foods,SABMiller, SSE, Tate & Lyle and Unilever.

"Equities in London are expected to open higher this morning, tracking sharp overnight gains in the global markets along with rising confidence that the electorate will choose to reject Brexit on June 23rd. The FTSE-100 is seen up some 26 points during early trade. US stocks led the way, with financial and technology shares the most obvious beneficiaries following better than expected housing data, firming oil and fresh investor optimism that June‟s anticipated Fed rate hike will not undermine domestic growth to the extent being suggested by market bears. The net result was for all 10 sectors in the S&P 500 to close higher. Asian markets followed suit, with most of the territories‟ principal indices rising 1% or more. Eurozone finance ministers and the International Monetary Fund also contributed to the improved mood, putting together a proposal early on Wednesday that clears the way to provide fresh loans for Greece and sets out a basis for the country‟s future debt relief. The European Union also approved Anheuser Busch InBev NV's US$108 billion takeover of rival SABMiller on the understanding that the latter sheds most of its European assets. Investors should look out for details from the EU meeting of finance ministers this morning and results from M&S and Babcock." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

N+1 Singer - Northern lights - Shining prospects for 2017
16 Jan 17
As the birthplace of Stephenson, Armstrong and Swan, the North East of England has a proud history of industrial and technological innovation. Despite local economic challenges, the region’s industrial heritage lives on through continuing success in high end engineering and technology. The recent takeovers of private equity backed SMD (subsea robotics) and Nomad Digital (wi-fi on the railways) are testament to this. The North East has also emerged as a leader in genetics and genomics with an enviable life sciences and healthcare infrastructure. Against this backdrop, we expect the region to continue to throw up attractive IPO candidates to build on the six new listings in the past three years. We expect 2017 to be far kinder to the existing portfolio of North East plcs than 2016 (a year to forget) with recent management changes one important theme for the new year. Our top picks are Hargreaves Services, Quantum Pharma and Zytronic (all N+1 Singer Corporate clients) and we are Buyers of Northgate and Grainger.
