Financial Market Outlook 11.1.2017

financial analystThe FTSE 100, made history yesterday, not only did it close at another  record high at 7275 up 37.7 points  +0.37%,  but it was also the  9th day in a role of closing at a new high. This has never happened before in the history of the FTSE.

The reason behind it is that the British pound has been falling since the BREXIT, as a weaker pound will increase profits of multinational corporations that are listed on the index, when they convert their earnings to pounds.

It is kind of a catch 22 situation, because as the pound goes down the FTSE goes up.  If you are currently investing in the UK stock market, it’s great, but not too good if international business needs to be done. A weaker pound, will give you less for your money in a foreign country.

The Mining, Banking and Health Care Equipment & Services had a good trading day.

Financial Market Outlook 10.1.2017

exam analystThe FTSE closed at a new high yesterday, at 7215 up 5.90, 0.08%.

Morrison Supermarkets was one of the main gainers of the market as the fourth largest supermarket in the UK did better than expected in the Christmas trading. The results indicate that the recent Christmas trading was the best performance in the last seven years. The Share price was up 4.2 %.

However, Tesco, the UK’s number one supermarket has emerged the winner with the fastest growing sales among the sector over the Christmas period. Tesco was up around 5% at the close of yesterday’s trading.

In New York, USA, THE Dow Jones did reach 20,000 – a new high but closed below the figure at the end of yesterday’s trading.

President Elect Donald Trump met with Jack Ma – CEO of Alibaba and promised to bring 1 million jobs to America. I believe trading deals and brining jobs back America as well as creating Jobs will be a strong point for Mr Trump.
Alibaba’s earnings for last quarter are due out on January 24.

Back on President Elect Trump; he has appointed his son in law Jared Kushner as his senior adviser. Mr Kushner played a key role in Mr Trump’s campaign for the election, and is married to Ivanka Trump.

Financial Market insight from our stocks and shares trainer

The FTSE closed at 7198.41 on Friday up 0.04%, I must say the index has started much stronger than this time last year.

Also from America, the Dow Jones Industrial Index closed just below 20,000, which is an all-time high, I believe the week approaching, we will see the Dow  go above the 20,000 mark for the first this in history. This could be classed as a positive for both the outgoing President Obama, and for President elect Trump.exam analyst

The figures that came out on last Friday (Non-farm payrolls) show that 156,000 jobs to the labour market, but the real good news was that the wage growth was the strongest since 2009. Good news for the outgoing President Obama, which would add to his legacy.

Remember, what happens in the US Market has an impact on the UK Market.
