    UPDATE 2-Trade worries hit FTSE 100, banks slip on BoE plan

    London's FTSE 100 index ended lower on Tuesday, giving up earlier gains as the mood soured in response to worries over U.S.-China trade and as major British banks fell after the Bank of England issued a new plan to handle potential banking crises. The mid-cap FTSE 250 fell 0.6%, dragged down in part by a near 10% drop in Virgin Money-owner CYBG. The blue-chip index followed Wall Street lower after U.S. President Donald Trump warned China not to wait for the 2020 U.S. presidential election to make a trade deal.

    Reckitt cuts sales target as China infant formula demand slows

    Reckitt Benckiser cut its full-year revenue target after reporting lower than expected sales in its last quarter under long-time chief executive Rakesh Kapoor, hurt by a surprise slowdown in demand for infant formula in China. The Durex condom and Lysol disinfectant maker said on Tuesday it now expected full-year like-for-like sales growth of between 2% and 3%, down from its previous target of 3% to 4%, also blaming a tough market in Europe for its downgrade. Reckitt, which kept its "broadly flat" operating margin target, said slowing birth rates over the past two years and increased competition had led to market share losses for its Enfamil infant nutrition products in China, its biggest market for baby food.
