The FTSE 100 is called to open 5 points higher at 7307. Stocks saw a muted start to the week as investors await fresh developments on the U.S.-China trade front. The pound strengthened as Conservatives backed their leader’s Brexit deal. U.S. and European stock futures were little changed after a mixed session in Asia.

The S&P 500 Index Friday reached another record in a sixth week of gains, the longest run in two years. Ten-year Treasury yields steadied around 1.82%. The yuan dipped after China lowered some borrowing costs. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow’s comment that U.S.-China talks were nearing final stages had given markets impetus Friday. The next day, U.S. and Chinese trade negotiators held “constructive discussions” in a phone call to address each side’s core concerns about a phase-one deal, according to the Chinese Commerce Ministry.
