The FTSE is currently indicating a weak opening, as traders wait for the release of the US non farm payroll report. While this economic data is not from UK, it is significant enough to have traders from both sides of the ocean pay close attention. Analysts are expecting the NFP to show the worst job loss in more then 25 years. The FTSE will most likely end this week on a sour note.

Oil tumbled past the 45 dollar per barrel mark yesterday, as the economic contraction and record job losses world wide has forced consumers to cut back on their fuel consumption. Oil lost 19 percent of its value this week, which coincided with the declaration of a recession in UK and US. We believe that oil should try and break the 40 dollar mark, but that's probably going to have to wait until next week.
