TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks managed to stage a small bounce on Wednesday, with sentiment boosted by the second bid for a British firm in as many days from across the Channel.

Also helping to put a bid into equities was a softer-than-expected UK inflation print for February that left analysts a tad more divided on the outlook for a hike in Bank Rate come May.

Against that backdrop, the FTSE 100 ended up by 0.26% to 7,061.27, while the pound was down 0.19% versus the dollar at 1.3998.

Meanwhile, Sterling was up 0.44% against the euro at 1.1419 as it still enjoyed some support from the agreement on terms for a Brexit transition period agreed the day before.
