FTSE 100 to Open Lower After Losses in US, Asia
FTSE 100 Seen Opening Lower After Declines in US, Asia
0638 GMT - The FTSE 100 is seen opening lower following declines
in Asia and U.S. stocks overnight as U.S.-China tensions rise over
reports U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi will
visit Taiwan. "These reports prompted some dark threats from China
that the People's Liberation Army would not stand idly if she
attempted to visit what is considered by China their sovereign
territory without permission," CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson
writes. "These tensions have spilled over into today's Asia
session, as we look ahead to a lower European open," Hewson says.
The FTSE 100 is expected to open 37 points lower, according to IG.
