TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The FTSE 100 rose 0.1% to 7,509.30 as sterling regained some poise, trading up 0.2% versus the euro at 1.1390 and down 0.2% against the dollar at 1.3754, halving its earlier losses. The currency has been under pressure since last week’s weak UK GDP data dashed any remaining hopes of an interest rate hike in May.

Sainsbury’s closed up 15% after confirming that it has agreed terms with Walmart over a merger with UK supermarket chain Asda to create a £51bn-revenue giant in exchange for a £3bn cash payment.
