BetOnMarkets Morning Report

The FTSE is currently indicating a flat open, as traders stay out of the market until the release of Bank of England's minutes from their last meeting. Traders are hoping that the BOE has left the door open to another rate cut, as the crumbling economy needs even more help from the government. The tone of the day depends on how favorable the minutes are.

After spiking on the news of the hijacked vessel, oil is back to trading below the 55 dollars per barrel mark. Analysts anticipate another week of inventory growing in the US. This could send oil prices tumbling even more, possibly touching the 50 dollars per barrel mark. The inventory data will be released at 10.35am EST.
