The main index, whose companies earn more than two-thirds of their profit from abroad, ended 0.1% higher, while the more domestically-focused FTSE 250 slipped 0.7%. A slump in sterling lifted internationally-exposed companies GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever and AstraZeneca, the biggest boosts to the FTSE 100. Stocks most sensitive to the any increased risk of a hard Brexit stumbled after multiple media reported rumours May's ministers could oust her in a row over her latest deal to exit the European Union.

The nation's second-largest housebuilder Persimmon had reported a drop in orders so far this year, while third-largest Taylor Wimpey had warned on margins and flagged cost pressures.

Royston Wild discusses a low-cost FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) dividend darling that he thinks is worthy of serious attention.
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.

The FTSE 100 edged 0.1 percent higher and the FTSE 250, which is more domestically focussed, was up by 0.6 percent at 0940 GMT. Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds were all higher with CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson attributing gains to hopes that MPs could agree a possible next course of action which could lead to a softer Brexit. Prime Minister Theresa May is also set to address her Conservative MPs, possibly to set out a timetable for her departure to win parliamentary support for her controversial Brexit deal after being heavily defeated twice in parliament.
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.
