    Broad sell-off sends Britain's FTSE to 2-month lows

    MILAN/LONDON, Feb 5 (Reuters) - The UK's top share index fell to its lowest level in around two months on Monday as worries over inflation and rising bond yields took their toll on global equity markets and a survey showed Britain's economy slowed sharply in January. The FTSE lost 1.4 percent and is down more than 4.5 percent year to date, partly weighed down by a continued recovery in the pound from post-Brexit lows. This session was the fifth consecutive day of losses for the index, its longest losing streak since November, in a broad-based sell-off where only a handful of stocks were trading in positive territory.

    European shares on a high as optimism on earnings, economy, grow

    MILAN/LONDON, Jan 19 (Reuters) - European shares rose to highs not seen since 2008 as growing confidence in corporate earnings and in the strength of the global economy continued to fuel a bull market, which shrugged off fears of a possible U.S. government shutdown. The euro zone's STOXX benchmark index closed up 0.73 percent at 402.95 points, its highest level in 10 years and the pan-regional STOXX 600 benchmark rose 0.5 percent to 400.71 points, a 2-1/2 year peak. The European results season shifts into gear next week with equity valuations at their highest in more than a year and investors betting that the engine of earnings upgrades has plenty more fuel in the tank.

    Weak start to 2018 floors UK retailer Carpetright

    Britain's biggest floor coverings retailer Carpetright (CPRC.L) lost almost half of its stock market value on Friday after it warned on full-year profit, blaming a post-Christmas drop in sales on waning consumer confidence. With official data confirming 2017 as the weakest year for UK retail since 2013, Carpetright's profit alert will stoke fears Britons have further reined-in spending on big ticket items at the start of 2018. Carpetright's fortunes are closely tied to the strength of the UK housing market and it is regarded by analysts as a lead indicator on the health of the economy, historically being "first in, first out" of a recession.
