Brent crude up, FTSE steady

The FTSE 100 held steady at 7,202.00 during midday trading as traders awaited the reopening of Wall Street.

Brent crude was up 1.04pc at $64.27 following growth of optimism about President Donald Trump meeting North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

Sterling struggled to make progress after official industry data showed a slow start to 2018, which led to a 0.1pc drop against the dollar at $1.3808.
