FTSE 100 steps back from another record high

Yesterday the FTSE 100 kicked off on the front foot and an update here noted the divergence between the UK benchmark and the DAX right from the very start of live trading. Well, that continued for the whole session. So, despite the falls in the DAX, the FTSE managed to set a new all time high, at 8,199.95. However, as you can see, it shied away from anything above 8,200 once again. However, the further falls in the DAX and the CAC 40 did eventually force the FTSE 100 back down into the monthly close, where it later ended the session just 2 points lower, at 8,144.13. Nevertheless, that was still a record monthly close for the FTSE 100 yesterday. The index will be open for live trading later this morning, where most of Europe will be closed for the May Day holiday. The index future is just now pricing a largely unchanged opening
