FTSE 100 | Eyes on “Meaningful Vote”

As the FTSE 100 registers its largest weekly decline in 2-months, expect another volatile week for UK assets. Eyes are firmly on the “Meaningful vote” which is set for Tuesday. As it stands, the government are divided on whether to vote in favour of PM May’s deal, with expectations firmly suggesting that the deal will be voted down, which could lead to several outcomes (see here). The FTSE 100 may yet again print 2yr lows.

DAX | Little Signs of Bearish Momentum Easing

2018 has so far been a torrid year for the DAX and with little signs of the bearish momentum easing, it looks set to continue. The evident slowdown in the Eurozone, alongside the uncertainties surrounding Italy and trade wars keeps the bearish outlook intact. Support is situated at 10800-30, whereby a break below could see losses exacerbated. Focus will be on the ECB, where bulls will be hoping for a dovish bias in light of the increasing negative sentiment, to keep the DAX afloat.
