What to expect from Trump's speech to Congress
Donald Trump is speaking to Congress tonight.

Trump also says he'd boost defense spending by $54bn in his proposed budget plan for 2018, which is about a 9% increase. Share Radio's Nigel Cassidy was joined by Jeremy Cook, Chief Economist at Worldfirst.

London Stock Exchange merger with Deutsche Boerse in danger over EU demand
The €29bn euro merger of the London Stock Exchange and Deutsche Boerse could collapse after the LSE said the deal was unlikely to be approved by the European Commission. The commission had ordered the LSE to sell its 60% stake in MTS, a fixed-income trading platform, which the stock exchange described as "disproportionate". A spokesperson for Theresa May said the merger was a "commercial matter." Share Radio's Nigel Cassidy was joined by Mike van Dulken, Head of Research of Accendo Markets.
