FTSE 100 to rise as US markets rally

ftse

London’s blue chips are set for a decent start after good gains overnight in the US and in most of the Asian markets.

Financial spread betters see FTSE 100 adding at least ten points from Tuesday’s close of 7,000 dead.

Despite an uptick in inflation and mixed messages on Brexit from several big names, shares rose yesterday.

US shares were strong with oil plays helping the Dow Jones Industrial Average finish the day 75 points higher at 18,161 with Nasdaq and the S&P 500 also going well.

In Asia, Tokyo and Shanghai eked out small gains while Hong King dipped a touch.

Results helped the mood in New York with Goldman Sachs, Yahoo and Visa all performing better than expected.
