FTSE 100 breaks two records in one day

The FTSE 100 finished up 15 points today to secure a record breaking 12th day of consecutive rises.

This is the longest uninterrupted run of growth in the flagship share index in its 33 year history and leaves the FTSE at its highest ever level.

The markets have been buoyed by some better than expected results from mining companies, strong Christmas trading figures and the Bank of England's governor and one of Project Fear's chief propagandists repeating his assessment that the EU has more to lose by making Brexit difficult than we do.

That global economic apocalypse that Brexit is going to cause is taking its time to materialise!
