TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

 London stocks were set for a muted open on Monday as investors kept an eye on Sino-US trade developments and with the Supreme Court ruling on the prorogation of Parliament due.

The FTSE 100 was called to open three points lower at 7,342.

CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson pointed to the fact that US stocks closed lower on Friday.

“The reason for the late falls was renewed concerns over progress on US-China trade after Chinese officials abruptly cancelled a trip to Montana and Nebraska for talks over farming, though the failure to overcome the previous peaks in July may well have also prompted some end of week profit taking,” he said.
