London markets were once again in the red on Thursday, this time amid slumping oil prices and escalating worries over U.S.-China trade relations following the arrest of a high-profile Huawei executive. The U.K.’s FTSE 100 (UK:UKX) was down 2.2% at 6,770.53, after a 1.4% drop on Wednesday. Through Wednesday’s close, the FTSE has plunged 10% so far this year.
