BetOnMarkets Morning Report

The FTSE is currently indicating a flat open, as traders wait for the interest rate decision by the Bank of England. While a 100 basis point cut is all but assured, there are some analysts who are predicting the BOE will surprise everyone again and cut 150 basis points, this would push the FTSE into positive territory but would be disastrous for the British Pound.

Crude oil continues its free fall, as the longest economic contraction since World War II has slashed demand worldwide. Oil currently trades just under 47 dollars per barrel, as lack of production cuts by OPEC and falling demand from consumers has resulted in an oversupply situation. Oil should settle nicely around 45 dollars per barrel by the end of the week.
