Despite the fact that it’s only mid- May, the FTSE100 looks set to record a new high for the 12th consecutive month.
Compared to the likes of the Dow, the Dax and the S&P500, the FTSE being quite heavily weighted with the financial and mining sector has dragged itsheels in re-acquiring a record high level.
