TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks reversed earlier losses on Wednesday as crude oil futures extended their recent bounce on supportive news out of Saudi and the States.

Just after the start of the session, a disappointing reading on China’s manufacturing sector sparked broad-based selling, sending the FTSE 100 as low as 6,599.48, but by the close the top-flight index was 0.01% higher at 6,734.23.

In parallel, front month Brent crude oil futures were climbing 4.01% to $56.08, even as the US dollar registered sharp gains, despite the ‘buzz’ in markets around the potential for US central bank interest rate cuts come the beginning of 2020.
