Overseas we've got losses in Europe, pretty decent day so far for Asian investors we've also got a new report out this morning coming from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development suggesting economic growth is set to pick up in the euro zone in China and the UK, but India Brazil and Russia are expected to remain sluggish in 2014 the OECD's leading indicator suggesting global economic growth is likely to pick up in the months to come, easing concerns that a continued slowdown in China and elsewhere in developing economies could offset pickups in developed economies while the global economy will perform less strongly than previously anticipated, it appears more likely it will grow rapidly in 2014 than in 2013.

Morning John on European stocks predominantly down, as investors focus on corporate news which is on balance marginally negative, Asian stocks held up better the Nikkei posting a gain of 2.2 percent on the rising Yen, the Hang Seng in Hong Kong down however one point seven percent. Here in Europe the Footsie the Dax the CAC all down. In the UK we've had some surprising figures on consumer price inflation rate for the month of October is just 2.2 percent down from 2.7 percent in September, way below expectations and the heading towards the Bank of England's target 2% rate this all means that the central bank is less likely to raise rates anytime soon. One company here in London that caused a splash is Vodafone Group the wireless services operator. It's brought forward and increased a capital expenditure program it calls projects "project spring" to upgrade is network infrastructure. Its spending about us 11 billion dollars an extra 1.6 billion from the figure it announced back in September.
