TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks looked set to nudge lower at the open on Wednesday following downbeat US and Asian sessions amid growing fears over Sino-US trade relations and as investors mull over a set of mixed Chinese trade data.
London Capital Group analyst Jasper Lawler said: “The overriding fear here is that global growth will take a hit should the US and China fail to hash out a trade deal and do so sooner rather than later. Just as the global economy was starting to show tentative signs of stabilising, a bigger slowdown is now back on the cards.”
