London’s FTSE index was down 1.3% on the final day that the U.K. is a de-facto member of the EU’s single market and customs union before Brexit is definitively implemented.

U.K. banks, retailers and home builders were among the stocks trading lower Thursday, with sentiment likely affected by both Brexit uncertainty and further restrictions on public life announced by the U.K. government on Wednesday due to the rate of coronavirus infection.
