While globally markets have largely fallen, the FTSE 100 has managed to buck the downward trend.
It's ended the day slightly higher, closing 0.07% at 7333.90. The rise will have been helped by the pound's fall. Many of the international firms listed earn revenues in dollars, meaning a weaker pound can be favourable to them.
In contrast, the FTSE 250 ended lower, dropping 0.64% to 19,312.38.
