FTSE 100 Seen Sharply Lower as Coronavirus Uncertainty Continues

12/02/2021 | 03:11am EST

FTSE 100 Tipped to Fall Amid Coronavirus Uncertainty

0732 GMT - The FTSE 100 is expected to open 70 points lower at 7,098, according to CMC Markets, after mixed trading in Asia and a lower close on Wall Street. Markets in mainland China and Japan fall, though stocks in Hong Kong are higher, as uncertainty about coronavirus variants continues to weigh on sentiment. "While stock markets continue to fluctuate between hope and fear, bond markets are also chopping around in anticipation of what the Federal Reserve's next move on monetary policy might be," CMC analyst Michael Hewson says. "Against this backdrop, it is then perhaps not surprising that we're set to see a negative European open later this morning." (philip.waller@wsj.com)
