The FTSE is currently indicating a flat open, as traders are waiting for the release of the UK CPI and retail price numbers. Both numbers could shed some light on the health of the consumer; CPI is expected to fall by 1% while retail price index is expected to remain flat year over year. The FTSE is likely to start the day in the red.

Crude oil fell below $37 a barrel on speculation that a deepening recession in Europe and Asia will stifle demand for fuels. Brent crude slumped to a three-week low yesterday after the Bank of England said the economy's first quarter contraction may match last quarter's 1.5 percent decline. Oil prices are likely to gravitate closer to the 35 dollars per barrel level before the inventory numbers are issued on Thursday.
