Top Trading Tips For The FTSE 100 Index This Week

Sage advice for investing in the FTSE 100 index

Any uptick in the mining sector will boost the FTSE 100’s performance. This will naturally be followed by an uptick in industrial metals, since the two go hand-in-hand. The banking sector has declined by 7.91% for the year to date, and 8.05% over 1 year. Oil and gas producers have recorded a 9.91% decline for the year-to-date and are trailing over a 1-year period by 14.51%. With the oil price steadily rising, and copper mines being shuttered in emerging market countries, we can expect a slow and steady increase in commodities prices. This will naturally lend itself to a stronger performance of the mining sector, and the FTSE 100 index. Go long on the index, but watch for day-to-day volatility with individual companies like Glencore PLC.
