TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London’s top-flight index jumped on Today as sterling slid on jitters about a no-deal Brexit, while a strong performance from the mining sector also provided a boost.
The FTSE 100 was up 1.67% or 122.91 points to 7,490.23, while the pound – which rallied a day earlier on the back of better-than-expected retail sales data – was down 1.44% against the dollar at 1.30725 and 1.18% lower versus the euro at 1.1135 after European Council president Donald Tusk said Theresa May’s Chequers proposal “will not work”, reigniting concerns about a no-deal Brexit.
