The FTSE closed at 7198.41 on Friday up 0.04%, I must say the index has started much stronger than this time last year.
Also from America, the Dow Jones Industrial Index closed just below 20,000, which is an all-time high, I believe the week approaching, we will see the Dow go above the 20,000 mark for the first this in history. This could be classed as a positive for both the outgoing President Obama, and for President elect Trump.
The figures that came out on last Friday (Non-farm payrolls) show that 156,000 jobs to the labour market, but the real good news was that the wage growth was the strongest since 2009. Good news for the outgoing President Obama, which would add to his legacy.
Remember, what happens in the US Market has an impact on the UK Market.
