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.
