London markets pared gains after the Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell’s dovish comments failed to significantly support the FTSE 100.
European markets rose after Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell’s dovish comments but were held back after the U.S. became embroiled in a spat with France over digital tax plans.
The UK’s largest housebuilder Barratt Developments is set to report record profits, as cheap borrowing and government support have boosted the industry. Pre-tax profits are expected to be about £910m for the year ending June 30, the company said in a trading update on Wednesday.

The main index, whose companies earn more than two-thirds of their profit from abroad, ended 0.1% higher, while the more domestically-focused FTSE 250 slipped 0.7%. A slump in sterling lifted internationally-exposed companies GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever and AstraZeneca, the biggest boosts to the FTSE 100. Stocks most sensitive to the any increased risk of a hard Brexit stumbled after multiple media reported rumours May's ministers could oust her in a row over her latest deal to exit the European Union.

The midcaps gave up 1.3 percent, lagging the main index, whose losses were capped due to gains across so-called defensive stocks, which are deemed safer bets at times of economic troubles. U.S. President Donald Trump late on Wednesday accused China of breaking the deal they had reached in trade talks, while a rise in U.S. tariffs is set to be triggered on Friday. The U.S. is set to up the ante ... and that has prompted dealers to cut and run," CMC Markets analyst David Madden said.
Chief Executive Officer David Thomas said that a modestly better outlook for the year translated to an improvement of 1-3 percent on Britain's biggest housebuilder's previous profit estimate. Barratt's upbeat view was in contrast to rivals Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey. The nation's second-largest housebuilder Persimmon had reported a drop in orders so far this year, while third-largest Taylor Wimpey had warned on margins and flagged cost pressures.

The FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 lost 0.6 percent each. Sainsbury's tumbled 4.7 percent to a near three-year low after the supermarket chain scrapped its proposed 7.3 billion pound takeover of Walmart-owned Asda after the deal was blocked by Britain's competition regulator. "The failure of securing a merger with Asda leaves the group in a bit of a vacuum, with leadership and strategic uncertainties the byproduct of the CMA's rebuttal," Jefferies analysts said.
It said costs had risen more than expected early this year due to surprisingly high demand for materials amid a buildup of buffer stocks in the industry on political uncertainty related partly to Britain's decision to leave the European Union. Taylor Wimpey now expects building costs to rise about 5 percent in 2019 versus a previous 3-4 percent forecast. Taylor Wimpey's shares fell 7.6 percent to 177.7 pence, pushing them to the bottom of London's blue chip index and dragging down rivals Persimmon Plc, Barratt Development Plc and Berkeley.

The FTSE 100 was down 0.1 percent, with losses led by several stocks trading ex-dividend, while the FTSE 250 added 0.7 percent. Dublin's main index, considered a measure of Brexit sentiment, jumped 0.6 percent. The European Union granted Britain a six-month extension to leave the bloc, averting a disorderly exit on Friday and giving Prime Minister Theresa May more time to break the Brexit deadlock at home.

The FTSE 100 edged 0.1 percent higher and the FTSE 250, which is more domestically focussed, was up by 0.6 percent at 0940 GMT. Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds were all higher with CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson attributing gains to hopes that MPs could agree a possible next course of action which could lead to a softer Brexit. Prime Minister Theresa May is also set to address her Conservative MPs, possibly to set out a timetable for her departure to win parliamentary support for her controversial Brexit deal after being heavily defeated twice in parliament.
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 MPs indicated they might support Prime Minister Theresa May's EU divorce deal rather than risk parliament cancelling the exit.

The FTSE 100 closed 0.1 percent higher, lagging other major European bourses where investors took comfort from U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to delay raising tariffs on Chinese imports. Lloyd's of London insurer Hiscox, which recently joined the FTSE 100, added 3 percent after reporting a profit for the year that beat market expectations. The pound gained after European Council President Donald Tusk said delaying Brexit beyond the planned March 29 exit date would be a "rational solution" as there was no majority in the British parliament to approve a divorce deal.
