FTSE 100, U.K.’s blue-chip index, hit a six-month low on Thursday as an escalating trade war between the U.S. and China and growing concerns over the world economy saw global stocks in sell-off mode. 

The index is down more than 6.7 percent over a 30-day period but is up more than 5 percent since the start of the year.
