TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stock finished Friday where they started the week as some disappointing trading updates and a bumper crop of companies going ex-dividend took points off the main indices, while sterling could not hold onto its earlier gains from a rather weak recovery in the key services sector.

The FTSE 100 closed down 40.5 points or 0.54% at 7,502.69, roughly where it started the week, as the pound was roughly flat against the dollar after rising and falling earlier and steadily losing more territory against the euro to 1.1336.

Sterling had earlier popped a little higher on a data showing that UK services sector activity recovered, though not particularly impressively, last month after losing the previous month.
