    Energy, mining stocks drag FTSE lower

    Oil and mining companies dragged Britain's FTSE 100 index to a negative close on Tuesday, tracking energy and metals prices lower, after gaining earlier in the session on a fall in sterling. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index ended down 0.28 percent at 7,747.18 points, retreating further from a record set last week and slightly underperforming the broader European market. Interest rate-sensitive banks propped up the FTSE, but the downward pressure from oil and mining shares grew through the rest of the session, pulling the index into the red.

    Weakest week in two months for FTSE as retailers, earnings weigh

    British shares could not shake a downbeat mood on Friday and suffered their biggest weekly drop in two months as retail stocks continued to weigh, with Burberry and Bunzl leading losses. FTSE 100 was down 0.7 percent, sliding for the second day alongside broad weakness in European trading. Bunzl dropped 6.3 percent, the weakest-performing large-cap stock, after a note from Morgan Stanley said the retail distributor's shares were not yet reflecting potential disruption from Amazon Business, the online giant's business-to-business distribution venture.
