London stocks were set for a negative open on Thursday amid ongoing market volatility, as investors eyed the latest minutes, rate announcement and quarterly Inflation Report from the Bank of England at midday.

The FTSE 100 was called to open 54 points lower at 7,225.

CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said: “As a result of last night’s late US sell-off markets in Europe are still set to open lower this morning as investors continue to digest the impact of recent price moves. While yesterday’s moves were slightly more orderly, it appears to be far from clear that the recent increase in volatility has subsided.
