London Shares to Open Flat After Mixed Asia Data

07/13/2021 | 03:06am EDT

FTSE 100 Set to Open Broadly Flat After Mixed Asia Data

The FTSE 100 is expected to open two points higher at 7127, according to CMC Markets, after mixed economic data in Asia and a positive close on Wall Street. Most Asia markets are in positive territory, with Hong Kong's Hang Seng more than 1% higher, while the Dow ended Monday 0.4% ahead. "After a similarly positive start Monday, Asia markets picked up where they left off, with the latest China trade numbers for June showing a slowdown in imports, though exports unexpectedly rose from levels in May," CMC's Michael Hewson says. "Against this backdrop, markets in Europe look set to open broadly unchanged," he says.
