Market comment – a personal view of Brian Tora

It is remarkable what a difference a couple of weeks can make. It was not so very long ago that it looked as though our benchmark FTSE 100 Share Index had a chance to break through into new high ground not seen since the end of the old millennium. October saw a number of negative weeks for UK shares, bringing the Footsie to its lowest level for a year. Investors must be wondering what precisely has been going on and how sentiment can change so rapidly.
