FTSE Loses 1% in Early Monday Trading
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
On Friday, FTSE 100 lost over 2%, to trade at a seven-week low, immediately following Trump’s announcement of 10% tariffs on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese imports. The markets are trading with a dominant risk-off sentiment, driving investors away from stock markets and towards safe haven assets like GOLD instead.
Later today, the FTSE could be impacted by services PMI data coming out of the UK. In addition, any further developments on Brexit or the trade war between US and China could also drive some moves in UK’s stock markets.
