FTSE seen opening lower

Relateret indhold

LONDON (Reuters) - The FTSE 100 index is seen opening down 11-14 points, or 0.3 percent on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers, tracking weakness overnight on Wall street and in Asia and ending a surprisingly strong month and the quarter in dull fashion.

The blue chip index closed 9.17 points, or 0.2 percent lower on Wednesday at 5,569.27 after a choppy session, with weak banks the main drag on sentiment.

The FTSE 100 index is up 6.3 percent so far in September. Wall Street also took a breather from a month-long rally on Wednesday, with investors bracing for higher volatility going forward as the best quarter in a year nears its end.

The dollar was stuck near an eight-month low on Thursday, ground down by expectations of more Federal Reserve easing, while Asian stocks pulled back slightly from a two-year high as markets paused after September's strong rally.

Consumer confidence weakened more than expected in September, as people's outlook on their own finances and the economy as a whole darkened, a GfK/NOP survey showed on Thursday.

The only other domestic macroeconomic feature on Thursday will be September's Nationwide house prices report, due for release at 7 a.m. British time.

But investors will be more focussed on the final reading for U.S. Q2 real GDP, due at 1:30 p.m. British time, although no revision is expected to the 1.6 percent quarter-on-quarter provisional growth number.

The latest U.S. weekly jobless claims and September ISM New York report will also be released at 1:30 p.m., with September's Chicago PMI data due at 2:45 p.m.

The Treasury has commissioned a probe into high-frequency automated trading over concerns that a computer-generated error could affect the economy, the Financial Times said on Thursday.

UK stocks to watch on Thursday are:
