TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

“For the pound, we had been looking at a potential 2020 recovery, with the prospect of a jump in business activity also providing sharp gains for UK-focused firms,” said IG analyst Josh Mahony.

“However, with Johnson introducing yet another needless cliff-edge, he has dented hopes of a sentiment driven boost in economic activity which has in turn put an end to the recent recovery in UK markets.”

Although it was Brexit news hogging the limelight, investors were also mulling over the latest UK jobs data from the Office for National Statistics, which showed that employment rose as employers unexpectedly hired more workers in the run-up to October’s second deadline for Brexit.
