    Financials support FTSE as markets tread water ahead of Fed

    British shares steadied on Wednesday as investors' anticipation of a rate rise from the U.S. Federal Reserve drove financial stocks higher while high-yielding consumer stocks suffered. The FTSE 100 and mid-cap indices ended less than 0.1 percent lower, outperforming the broader European market which fell ahead of the rate decision. The prospect of rising rates in the United States drove sector performance on Wednesday, boosting financials while dragging on housebuilders and consumer stocks.

    Stronger than Expected Eurozone Industrial Production Fails to Buoy European Equities

    European stock markets are mostly down, after a largely positive session in Asia. Japan underperformed as the yen strengthened amid a wider dip in the dollar, amid fresh concerns about Trump’s legislative agenda following the Democrats’ victory in Alabama and this also weighed on European markets, leaving the DAX down along with the Euro Stoxx 50. The FTSE 100 outperformed slightly as weaker than expected unemployment numbers knocked sterling down from highs, the IBEX, which was hit by the government’s sale of a 7% stake in Bankia Tuesday bounced back, while Italy’s MIB underperformed in tandem with BTPs amid reports of a general election in early March next year.

    Britain's FTSE touches 30-day high as oil prices rise, pound slips

    UK shares rose to their highest in a month on Tuesday as rising oil prices boosted energy stocks and the pound retreated, even though British UK inflation rose to its highest in six years. A cheaper pound generally supports the FTSE as the weaker currency translates into an accounting boost for large companies with overseas revenues. The blue-chip FTSE 100 closed up 0.63 percent at 7500.79 points, a level not reached since November 9.
