Friday Email: 02 August 2019

Every Friday morning our lead analyst Mark Riding sends out his weekly run-down and upcoming events in the investor calendar, like this one:

The FTSE 100 was trading slightly up on the week coming into today, but Donald Trump has overnight escalated further the trade war with China. The FTSE 100 is down 156 points this morning.

The past week has been very very busy with hundreds of companies reporting.

The week ahead slows down, but there is still a good level of reporting activity.
