    FTSE rides out trade war tit-for-tat

    The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended the day down 0.03 percent, while mid-caps (.FTMC) rose 0.4 percent, tracking higher European markets after Washington decided to slap 10 percent tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese goods, and Beijing retaliated. Beijing's retaliation was less harsh than feared and caused just a temporary blip in stock markets which recovered fast. The FTSE 100 remains down 5.1 percent so far this year, however, as a recovery in sterling on growing expectations of a Brexit deal has weighed on the exporter-heavy index.

    Coke eyes cannabis-infused drink market

    Coca-Cola announced its interest in a statement on Monday, responding to a report from BNN Bloomberg that said it was in talks with Canada's Aurora Cannabis Inc (ACB.TO) to develop drinks infused with cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive chemical found in marijuana. Coke would join a rush by major alcohol makers and a cigarette company to test the cannabis market and find partners ahead of the Oct. 17 launch of legal recreational marijuana in Canada. Coke and Aurora, in separate statements, each said they were interested in cannabidiol-infused beverages but would not comment on any specifics or talks.

The WTO panel ruled that the Australian law contributed to improving public health by reducing the use of and exposure to tobacco products, rebuffing claims that alternative measures would be equally effective.
