    Britain's FTSE off highs as sterling boost softens

    Britain's top share index ended off earlier highs on Friday, as the pound recovered after Donald Trump said he looked forward to finalising a post-Brexit trade deal with Britain. The U.S. President's remarks curbed gains for the FTSE to 0.1 percent. The index, which is heavy on companies with foreign currency revenues, was earlier up as much as 0.8 percent after a Trump interview that appeared to dismiss hopes of a U.S.-British trade deal, depressing the pound.

    Britain's FTSE gets sterling boost as earnings shuffle into view

    Britain's leading share index rose on Friday, buoyed by a weaker pound which slipped after U.S. President Donald Trump threw cold water on a hopes for a U.S. trade deal.

    [$$] Companies Worry That Spending on GDPR May Not Be Over

    Companies are spending millions on their security infrastructure ahead of new European data protection rules, but some worry that the law’s lack of clear technical guidelines may mean that these steps aren’t enough. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, aims to safeguard data-privacy rights by requiring companies to get consent before using personal data and requiring them to store it safely. One of the challenges for executives is that the legislation doesn’t specify how regulators will assess compliance, making it difficult for companies to decide if they have made sufficient changes to their data policies or invested enough in upgrading their systems. The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation on data privacy will come into force on May 25, 2018.
