    FTSE 100 rises as pound dips; Ocado, housebuilders rally

    The FTSE 100 was up 0.4 percent and the FTSE 250 was 0.1 percent higher by 0924 GMT. Sterling also fell as lawmakers wrested control of the parliamentary agenda from the government for a day in the hope of breaking the deadlock over Brexit and parliament will hold indicative votes on a range of options on Wednesday. "The pound has continued to absorb most of the political paralysis coming from MPs at Westminster, as headline fatigue starts to become more entrenched amongst currency traders," said CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson.

    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.

    Value of rare whisky rockets in Knight Frank's lucrative assets index

    Rare whisky was the most lucrative investment tracked in a new luxury asset index, rising 40 percent in value in 2018 versus a 12 percent gain in collectors' coins, which was runner-up, index compiler Knight Frank said on Wednesday. The Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index included rare whisky for the first time among alternative assets. The booming price of the spirit most closely associated with Scotland partly reflects surging Asian demand and less stellar growth in alternative assets amid what Knight Frank called "a return to a genuine collector-driven market".

    HSBC, stronger pound pressure FTSE 100; Greggs outshines mid-caps

    The FTSE 100 closed down 0.6 percent, its biggest fall in nearly two weeks, and the FTSE 250 was down 0.3 percent. HSBC was the biggest drag on the main bourse on its worst day in almost two years, as uncertainty around the China-U.S. trade situation was reflected in the Asia-focused bank's disappointing profit growth. Its shares slipped 4 percent, knocking more than 20 points off the FTSE 100 and dragging peer Standard Chartered down 2.1 percent, with the bank warning weaker economic outlooks for China and Britain would pose more challenges this year.
