The FTSE 100 touched a record closing high last week following the Federal Reserve raising interest rates in the US and the defeat of the anti-immigration Freedom party in the Dutch election.

The FTSE 100 closed up 0.5%, or 38 points, to 7,416. The blue-chip index continued its gain today, up marginally in mid-morning trading to 7,419. The index has gained 3.9% year to date.

“In London it comes as no surprise to learn that the lion’s share of the gains are coming from miners and oil stocks, which are once again revelling in the weaker US dollar,” said Chris Beauchamp, chief market analyst at IG, a UK-based online trading platform.
