    UPDATE 2-FTSE felled by Trump tariff threat, China data gloom

    London's FTSE 100 fell almost 1% on Friday after U.S. President Donald Trump's threat of tariffs on Mexico and disappointing manufacturing data from China stoked global downturn fears. The main index hit a more than two-and-a-half month low, while the mid-cap FTSE 250 fell 0.7%, with both recording their first monthly falls this year. Data on Friday showed China's factory activity shrank more than expected in May, another of the economic ramifications of the Sino-U.S. trade dispute.

    From Guacamole to Tequila, Trump's Mexico Tariffs Tax Partygoers

    President Donald Trump on May 30 issued a new threat to slap tariffs of as much as 25% on goods from Mexico, an escalation in his trade war that would raise the prices Americans pay for avocados and tequila. Autos are by far the largest category of Mexican-made products sold in the U.S., and top manufacturers from Audi AG to Volkswagen AG produce vehicles in the country. At the same time, Mexico also is a big supplier of fruit and drinks, and Trump’s latest volley may, therefore, mean less joy in Margaritaville this summer.

    UPDATE 2-London's main index ends strong with biggest weekly rise in 2 months

    Britain's FTSE 100 held firmly at its six-month high, marking a strong finish to the week as better-than-expected U.S. jobs data eased fears of a global economic slowdown while the pound weakened on growing Brexit jitters and lifted exporters. The blue-chip index advanced 0.6 percent, outshining its European peers and recording its biggest weekly gain in two months, while the midcaps rose 0.2 percent as weakness in the local currency capped gains. The FTSE 100 was already cheery as international companies rose on expectations that a China-U.S. trade dispute could be nearing an end, with President Donald Trump saying a deal could be reached in about four weeks.

    Exporter-heavy FTSE 100 snaps 4-day rally as potential Brexit delay lifts pound

    Britain's top share index broke a four-day winning streak on Wednesday as strength in banks and homebuilders on the prospect of another Brexit extension was outweighed by weakness in exporter stocks after the pound found its ground.

    UPDATE 2-Exporters and oil majors pull FTSE 100 out of the red

    London's main index bounced back from two sessions of losses as exporters were boosted by a strong dollar while oil companies rose on higher crude prices and Ocado surged to a record high on its latest partnership deal. The FTSE 100 added 0.3 percent, lagging behind European peers as Brexit uncertainties kept a lid on gains, while the FTSE 250 firmed by 0.5 percent. After British lawmakers on Monday wrested control of the parliamentary agenda from the government for a day in the hope of breaking the Brexit deadlock, two eurosceptic lawmakers indicated they might support Prime Minister Theresa May's EU divorce deal rather than risk parliament canceling the exit.
