One week of markets in one minute: Rally continues as FTSE 250 closes on pre-Brexit levels

One week of markets in one minute: Rally continues as FTSE 250 closes on pre-Brexit levels

A dip on Friday was not enough to dent the FTSE 250’s progress this week, while the FTSE 100 surged through the 6,700 mark, as the near certainty of further central bank intervention continued to support equity markets. In a world where bad news is actually good for markets because it implies further stimulus measures, there was plenty of negatives for investors to rejoice on the data front, not least an appalling services sector purchasing managers index number on Friday. The worst reading for the sector since 2009, it came in at 47.4 for July, down from 52.3 for the June survey. Any reading below 50 represents a contraction. Despite managing to confound what were already gloomy forecasts from analysts, the FTSE 100 rose in reaction, and indeed over the week it added a further 1%, closing at 6,730.5 points. The FTSE 250 had a better week, adding nearer 2% after closing at 16,983.5 points. Only today’s fall, which saw it dip 0.4%, stopped the index finishing the week back above 17,000 for the first time since the Brexit result. Among the blue chips it was the turn of the core defensive names, which report a large part of their earnings in dollars, to lead the index higher. Both the pharmaceutical giants AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline finished the week stronger, alongside HSBC which made similar progress. Stephen Jones, chief investment officer at Kames Capital, said this trend could be here for a while yet. “Their income has gone up as a result of the pound’s depreciation, and there is a strong investment case for portfolios to be exposed to FTSE 100 names which are going to do well... read more

Are we creating a ‘lost generation’ of young people?

Today’s young people have been disproportionately hit by the financial crisis. This age group suffers from high unemployment, with levels of young people in work still not returning to their pre-crisis high, as well as poor job security. It is also increasingly being shut out of the housing market, instead being forced to rent at ever-rising prices. At the same time, many of the benefits enjoyed by their parents’ generation, such as free university education and in many cases, generous, defined benefit pension schemes are no longer available to them.
