FTSE 100 shrugs off political turmoil
Steady gains are still in evidence, as the FTSE 100 clocks up a new higher high overnight in its move off the lows of last week.
A recovery back above 6840 would be a positive development, and then put 6920 and 7120 into the frame as upside targets. The bullish view persists until the index drops back below 6740.
