FTSE 100 Seen Sharply Lower as Coronavirus Uncertainty Continues
FTSE 100 Tipped to Fall Amid Coronavirus Uncertainty
0732 GMT - The FTSE 100 is expected to open 70 points lower at
7,098, according to CMC Markets, after mixed trading in Asia and a
lower close on Wall Street. Markets in mainland China and Japan
fall, though stocks in Hong Kong are higher, as uncertainty about
coronavirus variants continues to weigh on sentiment. "While stock
markets continue to fluctuate between hope and fear, bond markets
are also chopping around in anticipation of what the Federal
Reserve's next move on monetary policy might be," CMC analyst
Michael Hewson says. "Against this backdrop, it is then perhaps not
surprising that we're set to see a negative European open later
this morning." (firstname.lastname@example.org)
