The European Union agreed on Friday to enter intense talks with Britain to try to break the deadlock over Brexit, lifting financial markets with a sign that a deal could be done before the Halloween deadline. A flurry of activity has brought the fraught bargaining process to a new level as Britain's scheduled departure date of Oct. 31 grows ever closer, but it is still uncertain whether the two sides can make a breakthrough before then. By Thursday British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar said they had found "a pathway" to a possible deal, and by Friday some officials were expressing guarded optimism.

The pound fell to a six-day low on Wednesday, holding barely above $1.22 as Britain's Queen Elizabeth gave the nod to Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan to suspend parliament, leaving lawmakers little time to prevent a no-deal Brexit. A statement from the official body of advisers to the Queen, known as the Privy Council, confirmed that the British parliament will be prorogued on a day between Sept. 9 and Sept. 12, until Oct. 14. Sterling plunged earlier as low as $1.2156 and government bond yields fell when Prime Minister Boris Johnson sought to suspend parliament in September, just days after lawmakers return from summer recess.
European shares inched lower on Wednesday as worries of a looming global recession kept investors from making bold bets, while a dive in the pound over fears of a disorderly Brexit pushed British stocks higher. The pan-European STOXX 600 index ended 0.2% lower paring deep losses from the morning, helped by London's exporter-heavy FTSE 100 as sterling tumbled after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced plans to suspend parliament. Johnson's move, approved by Queen Elizabeth, limits the British parliament's ability to derail his Brexit plans, stoking fears of an economically disruptive no-deal departure from the European Union on Oct. 31.

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.
Taylor Wimpey boss Pete Redfern’s week got worse on Thursday as he admitted Brexit stockpiling would hit margins just days after pulling out of a controversial deal to buy one of the housebuilder’s own flats at a discount. Pay campaigners were outraged at Redfern using a 5% staff discount worth £100,000 to buy a £2 million luxury London flat and he pulled out of the purchase this week. The boss, who earned £3.2 million last year, said: “I recognise it’s now such a sensitive area it probably means that it isn’t realistic to buy property from the business, which given that’s what we do is a shame.
We often see insiders buying up shares in companies that perform well over the long term. The flip side of that is that there are more than a few examples of insiders dumping stock prior to a period of weak performance. So we'll take...

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.
