TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks were set for a negative open on Thursday, taking their cue from losses in Asia following the release of weak Chinese factory orders data and as the Trump-Kim denuclearisation summit yielded no progress.
The FTSE 100 was called to open 22 points lower at 7,085.
Sentiment was likely to take a hit after the summit between US President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ended with no agreement. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said earlier: “No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future.”
