Dealers' Early Call

The FTSE 100 is called to open 60 points higher at 7165. Stocks were mixed in Asia and futures pointed to a firm start for equity markets in London and New York as investors assessed whether the recent rallies can endure. The pound slid as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May fought to keep her Brexit divorce plan alive. Shares drifted for most of the Asian day, with equities in Japan and Hong Kong little changed, while they gained in China.The region’s stocks shrugged off leads from a weak U.S. session on Friday when large-cap tech stocks dragged the Nasdaq 100 Index to a loss of more than 1.5 percent. Oil prices snapped a 10-day sell-off after the bear market for crude spurred OPEC and its allies to start laying the groundwork to cut supply in 2019. Yields on 10-year Treasuries, which don’t trade Monday thanks to a U.S. holiday, ended just below 3.2 percent on Friday.

Will Turkey spark the next crisis?

The immediate trigger for the sell-off in Turkey was a dispute with the US over an imprisoned American pastor, Andrew Brunson (since released), who was caught up in the aborted coup of 2016. However, there have been wider concerns beyond the spat with the US.

The future of the FTSE 100

In January next year, the FTSE 100 celebrates its 35th birthday. Like the world around it, the index has not been immune to the winds of change, with only 29 of the original 100 companies represented in the index at the beginning of this year. At its creation, the index served as a clear reflection of the UK economy.
