TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The FTSE 100 bounced back on Wednesday but fell agonisingly short of regaining the 7,000 level as markets swung from pessimism to optimism that a global trade war can be averted, with the surging dollar helping many of London’s multi-nationals.

London’s blue chip index closed 111.19 points or 1.61% higher at 6,999.88, having earlier topped 7,042, as the pound pared some of its initial losses to sit around 0.5% lower against the dollar at 1.4155.

Traders in the Square Mile had been initially spurred on by Wall Street’s best session since August 2015, rebounding from last week’s worst performance since January 2016.
