London stocks were set for a marginally firmer open on Monday, with traders likely to be on edge as they await Russia’s response to the US-led intervention in Syria.

The FTSE 10 was called to open just 10 points higher at 7,274.

CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said: “One of the main concerns last week was around the extent of the response by the US backed coalition on President Assad of Syria’s forces and any Russian reaction to it. The firing of over 100 cruise missiles over the weekend on various targets, with little in the way of casualties, appears to be tempered with relief that while it may reduce the risk of an escalation in the short term, it in no way means that we might not get a counter response further down the line. As such markets here in Europe look set to open cautiously higher this morning after shares traded slightly firmer in Asia.
