TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks recouped more of last month’s losses on Tuesday, underpinned by optimism over US-China trade talks, rumours of a delay to the Brexit date and bargain hunting by investors.
Lifting the mood in the background was reports of a productive round of talks between Chinese and US officials in Beijing, with a US trade delegation member saying talks had gone well and are set to continue on Wednesday. Follow-up cabinet-level talks are also expected later in January.
