The FTSE is currently indicating a lower opening, as traders wait for the release of the UK employment data. Analysts are expecting the rate to climb to 6.1% however, should the rate come out higher then expected, look for the FTSE to take a hit. Also being released today, are the minutes from the last BOE meeting. Traders are hoping the minutes will give a clue regarding how big the next rate cut will be.

Crude oil benefited from profit taking as traders bought oil contracts to close out their short positions after March oil contract dropped 23 percent over the preceding 10 trading days. Oil will probably trade in a tight range until the release of the oil inventory numbers at 10.35 AM EST. Prices will probably fall as analysts are expecting another buildup of oil inventory.
