Stocks are in the red this morning as traders look ahead to the US non-farm payrolls report. Continental Europe is feeling the pain far worse than the London market.

Shares in BT Group (LON:BT) fell after the company revealed a 3% drop in revenue and a 2% fall in earnings in the latest quarter. The company cited increased expenditure in relation to business rates and pension costs as a reason behind the disappointing performance, but the full-year outlook remain unchanged. The share price is down 5.5% today and hit a five year low, and if this negative move continues it may target 200p.

Deutsche Bank (DE:DBKGn) posed a full-year loss of €497 million, which was much larger than the €290 million loss that analysts were expecting .The bank stated that changes to the US tax system caused the bank to take a hit of €1.4 billion. Adding to their woes was a lack of market volatility in the financial markets which weighed on investment banking services. The stock is down 6.6%.

Capita (LON:CPI) shares are up 2% at 163p after Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) raised their outlook on the stock to equal-weight from underweight, but the bank cut their price target to 180p from 460p.

GBP/USD has been feeling the pressure of the firmer US dollar this morning, and the weaker than expected UK construction data also put pressure on the pound. Last month the UK construction PMI report fell to 50.2 from 52.2 in December, the fact the sector barley grew in January worried traders.

EUR/USD is also being hurt by the bounce back in the US dollar and the slip in eurozone PPI and Italian CPI gave traders another reason to sell the euro versus the US dollar. Eurozone PPI fell to 2.2% from 2.8%, and Italian CPI slipped to 0.8% from 0.9%.

At 1.30pm (UK time) the US will announce the non-farm payrolls report and the consensus is for 180,000 jobs to have been added in January and for unemployment to hold steady at 4.1%. On an annual basis average earnings are tipped to tick up to 2.6% from 2.5%. When it comes to the US job report the finer details are key, the wage growth have been distinctively lacking when compared with job creation.

We are expecting the Dow Jones to open down 281 points at 25,905 and we are calling the S&P 500 down 21 points at 2800.
