FTSE 100 to Fall After Downbeat Asia, U.S. Trading

08/10/2022 | 03:05am EDT

FTSE 100 Poised to Fall After Downbeat Asia, US Trading

0638 GMT - The FTSE 100 Index looks set to open 22 points lower at 7466, according to IG futures data, after downbeat trading in Asia and a negative close on Wall Street. Markets in Australia, mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea all fall and the Dow dropped 0.2% Tuesday. Brent crude retreats 0.8% to $95.54 a barrel. "U.S. markets came under pressure as tech weakness acted as a wider drag after another earnings downgrade, this time from Micron, following Nvidia on Monday," CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson says in a note. "This weakness looks set to translate into a cautious European open as investors seek evidence that inflation is starting to show signs of topping out." (philip.waller@wsj.com)
