TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks were to drop at the open on Tuesday as investors eyed the release of key UK jobs data.
The FTSE 100 was called to open 15 points lower at 7,220.
Ipek Ozkardeskaya, senior market analyst at London Capital Group, said: “The fading positive momentum in Britain’s blue-chip index is partly explained by a stronger pound. The 20-day negative correlation between the sterling and the FTSE has jumped up to 70% last month, as the pound tanked on no-deal Brexit worries.
