TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London shares kicked-off the new quarter on the front foot, driven by gains from the mining sector on the back of improved Chinese economic data and more positive sounds from US-China trade talks.

But a rally in the pound ahead of another round of indicative votes on alternative Brexit solutions trimmed the top off early stock market gains.

With nine days until the new 12 April Brexit date, the House of Commons again wrested control of the day’s proceedings to debate possible alternatives to the Theresa May’s deal, with the indicative votes taking place from around 2000 BST.
