Market overview: Stocks higher on Chinese stimulus

Market overview: Stocks higher on Chinese stimulus

1630:Close Shares ended higher on the back of the new stimulus measures launched by Beijing over the weekend, with global miners pacing gains on the top flight index – although Chinese stocks and metals“ prices were lower at the end of their respective trading days. Rio Tinto, which was set to unveil a quarterly operational review on Monday night and BHP, which was scheduled to do the same on Wednesday, were near the top of the leaderboard at the close.

FTSE 100 up 57.50 points to 7,052.13.
