    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.

    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.

    Ashtead starts share buyback, lifts full-year forecast

    The company, which hires out diggers and tools on short-term contracts, also announced that its chairman, Chris Cole, would retire next year after serving in the position for almost 10 years. Ashtead is starting a share buyback programme of at least 500 million pounds and up to 1 billion over the next 18 months, it said on Tuesday.
