TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

US President Trump said on Thursday after a meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He that a trade deal between the two nations was about four weeks away, with some sticking points remaining. Trump said the two sides had agreed “a lot of the most difficult points” but still had some way to go.

On home turf, meanwhile, Prime Minister Theresa May is due to hold another round of talks with Labour following four and a half hours of discussions on Thursday, in a bid to break the Brexit deadlock.

This comes as European Council President Donald Tusk suggested a flexible 12-month delay to Article 50 with an option to leave the EU once the Withdrawal Agreement is ratified by parliament, and as May and Labour leader Corbyn battle with their own parties about the possibility of a second Brexit referendum.
