TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London’s blue-chip benchmark finished in the red on Tuesday but domestically focused stocks climbed higher, as Theresa May offered parliament a vote to prevent a no-deal Brexit sending the pound surging and also lifting hopes for the UK economy.
The FTSE 100 fell 0.45% to 7,151.12 as sterling surged to its highest level against the euro since May 2017 and its highest against the dollar since September after the prime minister said that if her Brexit deal is defeated in parliament next month, she will give MPs two further votes to decide what to do next.
