FTSE Gains But Stops Short of Record High


Saturday, 21st October 2017

Banks were some of the top performers in the index. Standard Chartered gained 3.2 percent, and Barclays gained 1.1 percent. Meanwhile, Intercontinental Hotels Group slid by 1.1 percent, in spite of the Holiday Inn owner reporting increasing third-quarter revenues.

The company said that one of the key measures - revenue available per room - was up by 2.3 percent in the three months leading up to September. Meanwhile, there was a split between the company’s performance in Europe and the USA - Revenue per available room was up by 7.1 percent in Europe, as tourists returned to destinations that had been unpopular due to past terror attacks. In America, however, RevenuePAR is up by just 0.8 percent because of the disruption to tourism caused by hurricane Harvey and hurricane Irma.

Meanwhile, in the currency markets, the pound increased by 0.21 percent against the dollar, and is up by 0.89 percent against the euro. In the short term, the recovery of the pound may be seen as bad news for the FTSE 100, but investors are increasingly focusing on fundamentals and global politics for a longer term view of the index.
