TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks finished on a mixed note, with the top-flight index staging a small bounce even as the pound regained some composure but with the FTSE 250 clobbered by a spate of profit warnings.
The FTSE 100 was up by 0.48% or 33.31 points to 7,029.22, although at one point during the session it dropped below the 7,000 mark to sit at six-month lows.
In parallel, the second-tier index dropped 0.90% or 170.0 points o 18,803.45. Meanwhile, sterling was little changed at $1.31605 and down 0.21% versus the euro at 1.1354, after it emerged that weekend Brexit negotiations between Dominic Raab and the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, failed to yield any breakthroughs, with the Irish border still the main bone of contention.
