Traders are putting the bounce on a strong session for markets in Asia and the US overnight. Here’s Accendo Markets’ head of research Mike van Dulken:
The positive opening call comes after Asian bourses recouped some of yesterday’s losses to close out a highly volatile quarter following a more solid US session thanks to a late rally. Hopes of more stimulus are offsetting IMF warnings on Emerging markets and their debt load ahead of a US rate rise sometime on the next year.
In London the market is being helped by a rebound for Glencore and better than expected figures from Sainsbury’s. Sainsbury’s is up 11%, while rival Tesco is up 4% and Morrisons is up 5.5%.
