While US indices remain at, or near to, recent multi-year highs, one index that has underperformed global rivals, the FTSE 100, had a very strong week on the back of supportive UK economic data. The UK 100 also benefitted from the slightly stronger US dollar with around 70% of company earnings made overseas.

Gold also trimmed losses this week, helped in part by the precious metal being heavily oversold, according to one technical indicator.
