TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Stocks in London looked set to rise at the open on Friday although gains could be capped by a stronger pound after Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party secured a parliamentary majority.

The FTSE 100 was called to open up around 30 points at 7,300. The unspectacular gains were down to a surge in the pound, which saw its biggest rally in more than a decade overnight as exit polls suggested a big Tory majority.

At 0715 GMT, sterling was up 2.2% against the dollar at 1.3346 and 1.8% higher versus the euro at 1.2038. A firmer pound tends to weigh on the top-flight index as around 70% of its constituents derive most of their earnings from overseas.
