London stocks wobbled late on but managed to end Tuesday a little higher, helped along by solid earnings from BP and a housebuilding sector rally.
The FTSE 100 closed up 0.14% to 7,035.85, helped as the pound dropped below $1.28 to a 10-week low, trading down 0.66% against the dollar to 1.27094 and by 0.51% lower versus the euro to 1.1192 as investors continued to digest Monday’s Budget.
Sterling fell against the dollar amid strong US consumer confidence data and ongoing Brexit concerns, highlighted by a report from credit agency S&P that warned a no-deal exit would be likely to tip the UK into a recession.
