FTSE 100 Set to Open Flat After Downbeat Asia Trading

0635 GMT - The FTSE 100 Index looks set to open broadly flat at around 7029, according to IG data after downbeat trading in Asia. Stocks in Hong Kong and Japan are down 2% and 1%, respectively, with Chinese markets closed. "Asian equities kicked off the week on a mixed note," Swissquote analyst Ipek Ozkardeskaya says. "Hang Seng stocks slipped more than 2% as trading on China's Evergrande Group and its property services were halted in Hong Kong following a report revealing that the company agreed to sell a controlling stake in the unit to raise much-needed cash," Ozkardeskaya says.
