    FTSE 100 in seventh heaven as oil, miners gain; Ocado hits life high

    The FTSE 100 was up 0.3 percent. The domestically-focused FTSE 250 was up 0.3 percent as investors waited for further Brexit developments with reports that Prime Minister Theresa May would ask the European Union to delay Brexit by at least three months. May's Brexit plans were derailed after the speaker of Britain's parliament said on Monday that her deal could not be voted on again after two thumping defeats unless a different proposal was submitted.

    Stocks Steady as Fed Meeting Looms; Latest Brexit Twist Checks Risk Appetite

    Global stocks were little-changed in overnight trading as investors kept risk appetite in check ahead of the start of this month's Fed meeting in Washington. CME Group futures contracts suggest no change in rates from the Fed this week, but price in a 30% chance of a rate cut by January 2019. Britain's Brexit saga took another twist yesterday after a ruling from the Parliamentary speaker said Prime Minister May can't bring her twice-defeated Brexit deal to lawmakers without substantial changes to its text.

    Autos stocks lead gains as European markets move higher; Danske Bank shares dive 5%

    The pan-European Stoxx 600 was up around 0.7 percent during mid-morning deals, with most sectors and major bourses in positive territory. Market focus is largely attuned to central bank expectations, with the Fed due to kick-off its two-day policy meeting later in the session. May only has two days to secure approval for her deal to leave the European Union if she wants to meet with the bloc's leaders on Thursday with something to offer them in exchange for more time.

    FTSE 100 at five-month high as pound drops amid Brexit chaos

    The FTSE 100 added 1 percent - its biggest one-day rise since early February - to mark a sixth straight session of gains while midcaps ended roughly flat as a weaker pound weighed. Parliamentary speaker John Bercow said any proposal British Prime Minister Theresa May puts to lawmakers must be substantially different to the ones previously rejected by them. Bercow's comments aggravated Brexit jitters as May has just a few days to push her divorce deal through if she wants to go to an EU summit on Thursday with something to offer them in return for more time.

Britain's FTSE 100 outperformed its European peers with a nearly 0.7 percent gain at the start of a week that could see parliament voting for a third time on Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan after ruling out a near-term no-deal exit.

    Dividend, FTSE 100 inclusion lend appeal to Phoenix Group shares - Barron's

    Shares of U.K. insurer Phoenix Group Holdings are appealing for several reasons including their pending inclusion in a key British stock index and a stable, hefty dividend, according to Barron's. Starting on Monday, Phoenix Group will be included in the FTSE 100 index which means fund managers that track that index will need to buy the stock. The company also is expected to pay a bigger dividend than its life-insurance industry peers, according to Barron's. The article cited a Barclays report that said it expects Phoenix’s dividend yield to total 7.5 percent this year, above 7 percent for Legal & General Group and 6.7 percent for Dutch life insurer Aegon.

    UK shares up after vote for Brexit delay; oil majors gain

    Britain's parliament approved asking the European Union for a short delay if lawmakers can agree on a Brexit deal by March 20, or a longer delay if nothing can be agreed in time. Stocks deemed to be less risky at times of economic uncertainty also contributed to gains with consumer giant Unilever, tobacco firm British American Tobacco and pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline rising. Spreadex analyst Connor Campbell said the need for the EU to unanimously approve any delay meant some uncertainty remained, thus drawing investors to defensive stocks.
