* FTSE 100 up 0.3%, FTSE 250 up 0.6%
* Markets attempt recovery after recent sell-off on trade worries
* Hargreaves up after FY results
Aug 8 (Reuters) - London’s main index recovered for the second session running on Thursday as global markets were boosted by a round of Chinese data that soothed some of the growth fears, which had afflicted trading in the past week.
Fund supermarket Hargreaves Lansdown, whose shares took a beating in June as nearly a quarter of its clients were exposed to Neil Woodford’s suspended fund, advanced nearly 4% after a forecast-beating rise in full-year assets.
The FTSE 100, which has fallen almost 5% since President Donald Trump said he would slap tariffs on more Chinese imports last week, climbed 0.3% by 0715 GMT. The more domestically-focused midcap index rose 0.6%.
