Market comment – a personal view of Brian Tora

Markets have retained their more positive stance, despite little sign of any resolution in any of the world’s trouble spots. The FTSE 100 Share Index moved tantalisingly close to its all time high of more than 14 years ago, while sterling has also taken on a new lease of life, helped by continuing positive economic straws in the wind allowing a more confident view of the future to be taken. But profit taking does seem to set in as we get close to the hurdle of a new high.
