TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks climbed back to their feet on Friday afternoon along with continental peers after the European Central Bank said it was unlikely to raise rates before autumn next year.

The FTSE 100 finished up 0.8% at 7,765.79, reversing course from an earlier decline of 0.7% as the mining sector recovered and investors digested better-than-expected UK retail sales data and a hawkish Fed update overnight.

While the ECB said it would end quantitative easing by December, which was largely expected to be announced next month, the Governing Council surprised with a policy statement stating that interest rates would “remain at their present levels at least through the summer of 2019 and in any case for as long as necessary to ensure that the evolution of inflation remains aligned with the current expectations of a sustained adjustment path.”
