Commodity, banking stocks push FTSE 100 higher

08/08/2022 | 03:29am EDT
A man wearing a protective face mask walks past the London Stock Exchange Group building in the City of London financial district, whilst British stocks tumble as investors fear that the coronavirus outbreak could stall the global economy, in London

(Reuters) - Britain's blue-chip index rose on Monday, boosted by economically sensitive commodity and banking stocks after upbeat U.S. and Chinese economic data eased worries about a recession.

The FTSE 100 gained 0.6% and was hovering near its two-month high by 0711 GMT, while the domestically focussed midcap index added 0.3%.

Oil majors Shell and BP rose more than 1%, as crude prices bounced following strong U.S. jobs data and Chinese exports numbers that picked up unexpectedly in July. [O/R]

Global miners Glencore and Anglo American were also up 1%, tracking stronger metal and iron ore prices, while rate-sensitive banks also climbed.[IRONORE/] [MET/L]

Among other stocks, PageGroup Plc slipped 0.3% even as the global recruiter reported a 79.3% jump in half-year operating profit.

Joules Group soared 24.2% after the fashion group said it was in talks over a potential equity investment of about 15 million pounds ($18.11 million) from retailer Next Plc.
