The FTSE 100 is seen 12 points lower at 7,287, the CAC is expected to open down around 10 points at 5,402, while the DAX is also poised to start 10 points lower at 11,647, according to IG. Market focus is largely attuned to central bank expectations, with the Fed due to kick-off its two-day policy meeting later in the session. May only has two days to secure approval for her deal to leave the European Union if she wants to meet with the bloc’s leaders on Thursday with something to offer them in exchange for more time.
