London equities are due to open in the wake of gains on Wall St and in Asia, with investors looking to a raft of purchasing-managers' index data out in UK, Europe and the US. 

The prospects of Brexit, Donald Trump and Deutsche Bank still remain factors contributing to investors' overall unease.


On Wall St overnight on Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.91% to 18,308.15, the S&P 500 firmed 0.8% to 2168.27 and the Nasdaq Composite gained 0.81% to 5312.0.

In Asia this morning, the Nikkei 225 had risen 0.9% to 16,597.21, while the Hang Seng firmed 1.29% to 23,597.86.

At 6.03am, WTI crude was down 0.33% to $47.91/bbl and Brent was down 0.48% to $49.95. Gold was up 0.01% to $1317.2/oz.
