On Monday, the White House re-nominated Jerome Powell as Fed Chair for another year and Lael Brainard as Vice-Chair. This was widely expected and broadly provides reassurance for investors looking for stability. Their roles underpin rate hike decisions and help guide financial market sentiment. However, inflation worries are once again causing concern.

Yesterday the market saw a continued sell-off in high growth, high valuation tech stocks. This is likely to continue today.

Oil is down as the US plans to release oil reserves with several other nations. Gold remains flat. Industrial metals are lower. Bitcoin is showing signs of weakness.
