TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks edged lower in early trade on Tuesday amid growing tensions between the US and North Korea, as the pound continued to grain ground.At 0840 BST, the FTSE 100 was down 0.2% to 7,289.08, as sterling rose 0.4% against the euro to 1.1406 and 0.2% versus the dollar to 1.3498.

“Part of the UK index’s decline will stem from sterling’s rise,” said Spreadex analyst Connor Campbell, pointing out that the euro has taken a hit from the German election while the greenback is weakening on the back of US tensions with North Korea.

North Korea’s foreign Minister Ri-Yong accused the US on Monday of declaring war on the country, a statement the White House later dismissed as “absurd”.
