The FTSE is currently indicating a flat open, as traders are waiting for the release of the UK GDP numbers. While analysts are expecting a contraction of 1.2%, there is a serious threat that the number will come out much worse. Also being released tomorrow is the UK retail sales report. Everyone is interested to see if consumers spent money during the all important Christmas shopping season. Look for the FTSE retail sector to react strongly to the retail numbers.

Crude oil fell after U.S. stockpiles rose more than four times forecast last week, raising concern of an oversupply as the global recession is getting worse. Oil continues to trade in a contango, which indicates there is an oversupply. OPEC has been trying to address the issue by cutting production but so far little has helped. Oil should finish out the week near the 40 dollars per barrel level.
