U.K. Stocks Edge Lower After FTSE 100's Biggest Gain in 3 Weeksby
TUI AG and Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc led U.K. stocks lower, while a rise in miners tempered losses.
TUI fell 1.4 percent after saying it will sell a portfolio of adventure-travel activities to focus on mass market holidays. RBS dropped 1.2 percent, tracking losses in European lenders. Randgold Resources Ltd. and Fresnillo Plc added 1.5 percent or more as precious metal prices rose.
The FTSE 100 Index fell 0.1 percent at 8:29 a.m. in London. The benchmark gained 0.7 percent yesterday, the most in three weeks, spurred by advances in banks and miners.
The broader FTSE All-Share Index fell 0.2 percent and Ireland’s ISEQ Index was little changed today.
