TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks looked set for a muted open on Wednesday as investors eyed an EU summit that will decide whether the UK gets another extension to Article 50.
The FTSE 100 was called to open unchanged at 7,425.
While Prime Minister May wants a short delay to Brexit until the end of June, it appears that a much longer one of up to a year is on the cards, after European Council President Donald Tusk said a brief delay would create a “rolling series of short extensions and emergency summits, creating new cliff-edge dates”.
