TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks were set to edge lower at the open on Wednesday as investors eye the release of third-quarter UK GDP data.

The FTSE 100 is expected to open 12 points lower at 7,514.

CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said the pound’s weakness on Tuesday was primarily a result of jitters about the prospect of there not being a rate hike next week.

“Reiterating his remarks from Monday, Bank of England deputy governor Jon Cunliffe threw more shade than light on the prospects for a rise in interest rates at next week’s Bank of England rate meeting and inflation report. His comments that a rate move remains an open question are in recent contrast to market expectations of a move next week, which are still priced at over 80%,” he said.
