TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks had extended their losses for a fourth day on Friday, dragged lower by a stronger pound and a bout of profit taking as investors sifted through a torrent of trading updates.

The FTSE 100 fell 0.3% to 7,700.96 as the pound rose to its highest level against the dollar since June 2016, up 0.4% to 1.3891 but was flat against the euro to 1.1353. A firmer pound tends to dent the top-flight index as around 70% of its constituent derive most of their earnings from overseas.
