TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks were set to rise at the open on Tuesday, taking their cue from a positive session on Wall Street as investors eyed key manufacturing data.
The FTSE 100 was called to open 20 points higher at 7,428, with Markit’s manufacturing PMI due at 0930 BST.
Ipek Ozkardeskaya, senior market analyst at London Capital Group, said a weak PMI reading could further spoil the investor mood and send the FTSE below the 7,400 support despite the cheapening pound.
