BetOnMarkets Morning Report

The FTSE currently indicates a weak opening, as traders wait for the release of the UK Industrial production numbers. This data should give analysts some hints on the condition of the industrial sector and if the interest rate cuts are going to stimulate the struggling economy. The FTSE is likely to start Tuesday morning in the red.

Oil prices firmed up yesterday as OPEC spread the news that they will be cutting output at the next meeting. While it is not known how much will be cut, it will take a significant cut to bring oil prices back to a decent level. It is likely that oil prices will continue to rise, but stop around the 45 dollar per barrel level.
