Market overview: FTSE little changed ahead of Yellen speech

0820: UK stocks inched marginally higher at the opening bell, as expected, as investors balanced a strong overnight performance from the US and Asia with a degree of caution in the lead up to Janet Yellen's speech scheduled later today at Jackson Hole. Banking and Telecoms groups are leading this upside this morning, while miners and the LSE are much closer to the bottom of the pile, despite the latter reporting that listing had bounced back in the first quarter with an increase in both the number of companies joining its markets and the amount of money raised. The FTSE 100 is up 1.87 points at 6,779.53. 32 minutes ago
