TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks fell on Monday as investors grew jittery ahead of this week’s Brexit vote in the House of Commons and before a raft of other key risk events around the globe, including the second round of US-China trade talks which were scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.
The FTSE 100 shed 0.91% to 6,747.10, while the pound was down 0.42%against the US dollar at 1.31568 and 0.51% lower versus the euro at 1.1511.
David Cheetham, chief market analyst at XTB, said the dip in the pound “seems to be more a case of the market paring its recent gains after a strong run higher of late rather than a clear reversal as once more traders are keenly awaiting a parliamentary vote on the PM’s latest deal”.
