Today we are looking at:

  • Global inflation starts to rise, aided by higher energy costs, UK inflationary pressures spurred by weak sterling, real rates consequently negative
  • Rand moves exacerbated by scant liquidity, majors subdued, eyes on local CPI and US FOMC today
  • Top 40 rises 0.63%, led by financials and industrials stocks; US equities upbeat ahead of Fed today; Asian markets mostly positive this morning
  • Japanese industrial production contracts in November
