TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London equity markets finished near their best levels of the session on Wednesday, after an unexpectedly strong reading on US consumer prices failed to knock Wall Street lower, arguably the biggest surprise of the session.

At the closing bell, the FTSE 100 was up 0.64% to 7,213.97, alongside a 0.49% jump in the pound to 1.3955 US dollars, partly on the heels of a speech from the Chancellor highlighting that a transition period following Brexit was in the best interests of both Brussels and London.

Also worth noting, the Bank of England’s summary of Agents’ summary of business conditions showed recruitment difficulties were continuing, alongside a pick-up in wage growth.
