FTSE edge higher

Comment on this story

Britain's top share index edged higher on Monday, helped by gains for advertising firm WPP after French peer Publicis said on Sunday that demand for advertising rebounded in October.

Broader market sentiment remained cautious, however, as uncertainty over Greek aid talks and the US fiscal policy outlook was compounded by weak growth data in Japan.

By 10:25 SA time, the FTSE 100 was up 0.2 percent at 5,779.15 points, having closed 0.1 percent lower in a choppy session on Friday. - Reuters
