TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks finished a touch higher on Monday in fairly quiet trade, as investors continued to keep an eye out for Brexit developments with the deadline for leaving the European Union just five days away.

Ahead of a key EU leaders’ summit on Wednesday, Prime Minister Theresa May was due to meet with the German Chancellor and French President the next day, to make her case for another short extension of Article 50 to 30 June. However, EU Council President Donald Tusk said last week that he would formally tell the EU to endorse a long extension until 31 March 2020, which could be terminated if the Withdrawal Agreement was accepted and ratified by the House of Commons.
