TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Stocks finished little changed on Today even as investors kept a close eye on government bond markets following the spate of sharp selling seen during the previous session, which market commentary linked to expectations for faster rate hikes in the States, especially following recent sharp gains in commodity prices.

“Despite background noise that continues to reverberate with concerns about trade, markets in Europe look set to close higher for the fourth week in succession, despite a mixed session yesterday, helped at the start of the week by relief that last weekend’s cruise missile strikes didn’t prompt an escalation in tensions between Russia and the US,” said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets UK.
