Marks and Spencer did stress that it did not discount in the run up to Christmas, and therefore maintained its profit margins, but nonetheless the market reacted strongly to the news, pushing the FTSE 100 member down 20% in early trading. Most of the retail sector followed M&S downwards; helping to push the FTSE 100 over 100 points lower by 9am. Sentiment on the stock market this morning was already in a negative mood after the Dow Jones Index in New York closed 238 points lower at 12, 589.]]>
