TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks started the week on a down note despite a weaker pound, albeit on the back of heightened political uncertainty, even as investors continued to ponder the risk of another leg lower on Wall Street.

Declines in the pound were fairly measured at present but, said David Cheetham, chief market analyst at XTB, the added uncertainty of the PM being ousted at such a critical time in Brexit negotiations could cause a swoon lower – particularly if May is replaced by former someone like Brexit secretary David Davis, who would likely push for a harder separation.
