The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indices both continued to rebound on Wednesday after a sharp sell-off on Monday.

The FTSE 100 climbed up by 13 points, or 0.2%, to close at 6,295. The FTSE 250 pushed up by 99 points, or 0.8%, to close at 13,342.

Hargreaves Lansdown (HL.) was the standout gainer on the FTSE 100 and was the main reason the benchmark index made any upward movement on Wednesday. Shares in the financial services company rallied by 11% after it announced that it was amassing more assets under administation and consequently experienced double-digit revenue and profit increases over the last six months of 2012. The company is also hiking its dividend. On Tuesday, shares jumped by nearly 6% in anticipation of the company reporting its interim results.
