FTSE 100 Rises as Oil, Financial Stocks Gain

FTSE 100 Rises as Oil, Financial Stocks Gain

0800 GMT - The FTSE 100 Index rises 0.5%, or 38 points to 7049 as gains for oil and financial stocks offset losses for consumer-goods shares. BP and Royal Dutch Shell are both up more than 1% as the price of a barrel of Brent crude increases 0.6% to $81.72 after OPEC left its output plans unchanged. Lloyds Banking Group, Standard Chartered, Aviva and NatWest are among the biggest risers in the financial sector. Reckitt Benckiser and Unilever are among a handful of fallers. Asia markets closed mixed and the Dow fell Monday. "Another bearish session for Asian markets overnight, with markets feeding off the negativity in the U.S. yesterday," IG analysts say.

Market Talk: 

UK Jan 2025 Gilt Auction Could Go Either Way

0720 GMT - The U.K. Debt Management Office's planned sale of GBP3 billion in the 0.25% January 2025 gilt "could go either way," says RBC Capital Markets. The gilt has fallen in value a lot on many metrics since the last tap, it has fallen out of favor on the Bank of England's Asset Purchase Facility bond-buying program and there are many taps on the horizon, analysts at the bank say."Whilst we think front-end yields are too high, the continued cheapening of the 3y sector on both outright and cross-market probably suggests that the market could take a bit longer to come around to our view," they say.
