TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Stocks in London’s top-flight index jumped on Monday, helped along by a weaker pound and a strong performance from the mining sector, even as the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, surprised markets, telling MPs the Prime Minister could not bring her withdrawal proposal back for a third vote.
“The government now faces the total ruin of its strategy, as a third ‘Meaningful Vote’ (a term that becomes less meaningful with each vote) is ruled out unless changes are made. But the EU is adamant, it is this deal or nothing, and as a result the PM must now, it seems, ask for long extension,” said IG’s Chris Beauchamp.
