TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks were set to nudge up at the open on Wednesday as investors eyed the Autumn Budget.
The FTSE 100 was expected to open three points higher at 7,414.
CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said the Budget, due at 1230GMT, is highly unlikely to produce any surprises.
“The Chancellor’s plans will undoubtedly be dictated by the fact that the Office for Budget Responsibility will have to downgrade its outlook for the UK economy from the figures we saw in March, where it estimated that the UK economy would see 2% GDP growth this year. This is likely to see a downgrade to about 1.5%,”
For the day the Dow are trading at 23,590.83 for up with +0.69% percent or +160.50 point. The S&P 500 are trading at 2,599.03 for up with +0.65% percent or +16.89 point. The Nasdaq Composite are trading at 6,862.48 for up with +1.06% percent or +71.76 point.
