FTSE 100 Rises as Oil Stocks, Miners Gain

11/30/2022 | 05:22am EST

FTSE 100 Rises in Early Trade as Oil Stocks, Miners Gain

1001 GMT - The FTSE 100 index trades up 0.4% at 7545.30 in early trade, buoyed by hopes that China could backtrack on its zero Covid-19 policy and shrugging off weak China data, while traders look ahead to testimony later by U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. Higher oil prices boost oil-linked stocks, with BP up 1.3%, while miners are also among the biggest risers, while utilities and other defensive stocks are mostly lower. "European markets have opened higher with technology and real estate outperforming. The FTSE 100 is staging gains while oil prices are also in the green," writes Victoria Scholar, head of investment at Interactive Investor. Rolls-Royce and Flutter Entertainment are the two biggest risers, both up around 2%. (jessica.fleetham@wsj.com)
