TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks finished near their worst levels of the session on Thursday after US technology giant Apple cut its first-quarter guidance – its first such move in almost 20 years – and a key gauge of factory sector conditions in the States dropped in December by the most since 2008.

But yet again, in both instances the underlying cause was recent weakness in the Chinese economy.

The FTSE 100 finished down 0.62% or 41.57 points at 6,692.66, while the pound staged a timid bounce of 0.24% against the US dollar to 1.2639 but was down by 0.17% to 1.1085 against the single currency.
