FTSE 100 hits record highs
The new year has got off to a flying start, with the index breezing to new record highs in the opening minutes of the session.
Bears, if there are any to be found, will need to shift the index below 7100 to suggest that weakness is in store. Otherwise, 7162 and then 7126 are potential areas of short-term support.
