* Ocado surges on Aeon partnership
Nov 29 (Reuters) - London’s FTSE 100 slipped for a second straight day on fears that the U.S. ratification of a law backing Hong Kong protesters would dent progress made in trade talks with China, even as Ocado outshone after a partnership with Japan’s Aeon.
The main index gave up 0.5% by 0803 GMT, as trade-sensitive stocks such as Asia-focussed HSBC and miners weighed. The mid-cap FTSE 250 was flat by 0810 GMT.
