    FTSE lags European rally as Brexit talks fail

    The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index was up 0.55 percent at 7,340.91 points, a modest performance in comparison with France's CAC 40 (.FCHI) and Germany's DAX (GDAXI), which were up 1.3 percent and 1.5 percent respectively. "The late afternoon news about no deal meant that sterling surrendered most of its gains, but there was little help for the FTSE 100," said Chris Beauchamp, Chief market analyst at IG. Last week's strength in sterling on the back of optimism over Brexit talks weighed on the FTSE 100, which ended the week with a 1.5 percent loss.

    TOKYO/LONDON (Reuters) - Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) sparked takeover speculation on Tuesday by naming a new chief executive who wants the world's third-largest international tobacco maker to do more overseas acquisitions to offset falling cigarette sales at home.
