FTSE 100 Seen Extending Losses on US Recession Fears
FTSE 100 Seen Opening Lower on US Recession Fears
0648 GMT - The FTSE 100 is seen opening lower after declines on
Wall Street overnight after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell
said a U.S. recession is possible in a testimony before Congress on
Wednesday. The London stocks index is expected to start trading
down 23 points, according to IG. Responding to a question about the
risk the Fed's plans to raise interest rates this year could lead
to a recession, Powell said that was "certainly a possibility."
Swissquote Bank analyst Ipek Ozkardeskaya writes: "More worryingly,
Powell mentioned another risk: the risk of the Fed not managing to
restore price stability and allowing inflation to get entrenched in
the economy." Powell will continue his testimony at 1400 GMT.

Copper Extends Losses Amid Risk-Off Mood
0227 GMT - Copper is lower in early Asian trading, extending the
previous session's losses amid a risk-off mood due to recession
fears, ING's commodities strategy head Warren Patterson says in a
note. "Metals markets were unable to escape the broader risk-off
move across markets," he says. That said, "while the macro picture
is a concern for metals, micro developments for some metals
continue to point towards a tight market," which could limit
losses, Patterson says. The three-month LME copper contract falls
2.0% to $8,600.00 a ton, taking one-month declines to 10%.
Low-Nicotine Cigarettes Seen as Potentially Boosting Sales
1458 ET - The FDA's plan to eliminate nearly all nicotine in
cigarettes to reduce smoking is likely to take several years until
it is fully implemented, RBC's Nik Modi tells WSJ, adding that he
expects tobacco stocks to see little impact in the process. "There
are many legal barriers they have to go through," he says. Modi
also suspects that current smokers could end up buying more
cigarettes. "They are smoking for the nicotine." Tobacco stocks
fall, with Altria losing 9% after WSJ reported that the FDA is
preparing to order Juul e-cigarretes off the US market.
