The FTSE 100 rallied by 1% showing 7,504.60, getting a boost from the UK pound’s sink that took place because a major European Union official had Britain’s Brexit plan criticized.

Trade negotiations between American and its partners have generated volatility in global financial markets for the last time. Additionally, market participants paid attention to Trump’s current stance toward Canada.
