TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks were set to drop at the open on Friday after US President Donald Trump said he would slap $100bn more tariffs on China.

The FTSE 100 was called to open down 39 points at 7,160.

After the close of US markets on Thursday, Trump said in a statement that the further tariffs were being considered “in light of China’s unfair retaliation”.
