TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks were set to drop at the open on Thursday as investors digest news that US President Trump has declared a national emergency to protect US computer networks from “foreign adversaries” – a move widely seen as targeting China’s Huawei.

CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said this paves the way for a ban on China’s biggest telecoms provider.

“This executive order appears to have curbed some of the exuberance of the late rebound in stocks yesterday with Asia markets reacting much more cautiously,” he said.

“While the suspension of auto tariffs is welcome it certainly doesn’t mean that President Trump can’t create ripples in other ways, and this is reflected in the more mixed reaction amongst Asia markets. This in turn is expected to translate into a lower European open later this morning.”
