TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks extended their losses on today, finishing down for the month amid weakness in the housebuilding sector and wider sector concerns sparked by a profit warning from business services outsourcer Capita.

The FTSE 100 gave up 54.4 points or 0.7% to finish on 7,533.55, meaning the London blue chip benchmark gave up its record mid-month highs to lose 60 points or 0.79% over the month of January.

The rising pound has been one of the chief reasons, with sterling adding 0.38% against the dollar to 1.4195 on Wednesday and recovering from an earlier 0.4% deficit versus the euro to make a small late gain at 1.1419 despite further gloomy Brexit reports and mixed eurozone data.
