Wed 21 Aug 2019

LONDON (SHARECAST) - (Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 100 was up 1.1% at 7,206.07 in afternoon trade on Wednesday as sterling fell on Brexit concerns ahead of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Luxury fashion brand Burberry was the sitting pretty at the top of the index, with some traders pointing to the fact there has been no escalation of unrest in Hong Kong.

Travel operator TUI was also firmly in the green.

UAE-based private healthcare operator NMC Health and Irish building materials group CRH advanced ahead of their interim results on Thursday.

On the downside, miners BHP and Rio Tinto were on the back foot as base metals prices fell.
