TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Stocks in London are nursing significant losses after the US President surprised markets with his decision to slap tariffs on Mexico and reports that Beijing might be nearer to retaliating for Washington\’s decision to blacklist telecoms equipment maker Huawei.

Further dampening sentiment was a weaker-than-expected reading on China\’s factory sector that analysts said showed that the trade war was already having an impact.

By the end of trading, the top-flight index had fallen by 0.79% or 56.90 points to 7,161.71, alongside a fall of 0.74% or 141.26 points to 18,970.25 for the second-tier index.
