A declining pound continues to prop up the FTSE 100, with the index almost the sole gainer among major indices. The 6500 mark continues to hold for the time being, with gains trapped by 6600.
A break below the former level would head towards 6380, while if the rally recovers and moves above 6600 then the next target is 6760.
