TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks were set to edge tentatively higher on Monday, with worries about a trade war and the political situation in Germany likely to keep investors cautious.

The FTSE 100 was called to open eight points higher at 7,642.

London Capital Group analyst Jasper Lawler said: “China responding in kind, on Friday, to Trump’s $50bon worth of tariffs on Chinese imports, by hitting US commodities with import pledges is unnerving investors. The tit for tat response is putting the two powers a step closer to an all-out global trade war.

“Investors will now be watching carefully for Trump’s response with further measures expected. The overriding concern here is how this is going to escalate with potential fallout being a slowdown in world trade and a drop-in business sentiment. Up until now we have seen investors escape into US tech stocks but that may be starting to run its course.”
