London Finance Show: Markets waiting on Trump’s response to North Korea

“The markets now are starting to realise what North Korea is doing isn’t great but it’s not going to move the markets in a negative way too much,” explains market commentator Matt Brown in Tuesday’s London Finance Show.

“It all comes down to the Trump and US response and that’s what we’re looking at this morning.”

Elsewhere, Brown takes a look at AVEVA Group PLC’s (LON:AVV) £3bn merger with Schneider Electric.

Barratt Developments PLC (LON:BDEV) is also under the spotlight ahead of its interims tomorrow following some decent results from fellow housebuilder Redrow plc (LON:RDW) today.

Sticking with the housing theme, AIM-quoted lettings agency Belvoir Lettings PLC (LON:BLV) gets a mention after it posted some good half-year numbers this morning.

Brown also casts his eye over the currency and cryptocurrency markets, as well as Morgan Stanley’s price cut on bookmaker Paddy Power Betfair plc (LON:PPB).
