London stocks were set for a positive open on Tuesday following heavy losses in the previous session on the back of trade war worries.

The FTSE 100 was called to open 19 points higher at 7,527 after suffering its worst day of losses since February on Monday amid escalating tensions between the US and China.

London Capital Group analyst Jasper Lawler said: “Despite a lower US & Asian trading session, European markets are seen advancing on Tuesday. With no change to fundamentals, there is little hope than this anything more than a mere dead cat bounce.
