BetOnMarkets Morning Report

The FTSE is indicating a lower opening, as traders await to see the release of the EU employment data. While its not UK data, with the EU being a huge trading partner, a slowdown there could mean harder times for the UK. The way the FTSE opens today is totally dependant on that report.

Oil is on the weaker side of things again, as concerns that OPEC will not cut enough production to offset lower demand has traders dumping the futures contract. Crude oil is trading down 63% since its all time high reached on July 11th. Oil prices will be fluctuating wildly today as traders position themselves before the OPEC announcement.
