TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks were set to open a little lower on Tuesday, taking their cue from a downbeat session on Wall Street.
The FTSE 100 was expected to open 14 points lower at 7,510.
CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said: “Even US stocks struggled to build on last week’s gains, slipping back for the first time in six days, despite posting new record highs first.
“This late slide in US markets looks set to translate into a negative open for European markets this morning as investors weigh up the risks that political fragmentation could start to translate into a slowdown in the economic recovery story that has so far characterised this year in Europe.”
