TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The FTSE 100 suffered a fifth consecutive day of decline as the emerging markets sell-off intensified and copper prices plunged into a bear market.

Slowing Chinese growth, the rising safe haven appeal of the dollar, trade war worries and an emerging markets wobble combined to send the blue chip index sliding to a four-month low.

Fears that the Turkish lira crisis could infect the other countries in the so-called “fragile five” – Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Africa – sparked a rout on currency and metal markets.

The South African rand led the emerging markets sell-off, dropping more than 3pc against the dollar, while Indonesia’s central bank lifted interest rates for a fourth time in as many months to stave off a currency crisis.
