TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Spreadex analyst Connor Campbell said: “At the start of a week that will almost certainly crown Boris Johnson as Prime Minister by Wednesday, and following a weekend full of headlines about rising tensions between Iran and the West, the markets would be forgiven for feeling a bit worse for wear.

“Instead European investors hit the snooze button, unwilling to get out of bed for what is looking like a pretty boring economic calendar this Monday.

“Having already unwound a chunk of last week’s rebound on Friday, the pound continued to trickle lower, opening down 0.2% against both the dollar and the euro. It will be interesting to watch how the currency performs this week. It is likely priced in that Johnson will win the Tory leadership contest; what is more uncertain is what happens next, with sterling potentially sensitive to the make-up of the former Mayor of London’s Cabinet.”
