There are conflicting signals for Equities. On the negative side, troubles in the Middle East and Ukraine are inevitably causing nervousness.
On the positive side, confidence in the economic recovery remains strong. Furthermore, the FTSE Index of the leading 100 UK shares is approaching the record level of 6,930 which was achieved in December 1999. Almost 15 years later, there is a good possibility of a “bounce” if a new record is achieved and the Index passes the 7,000 point.
