FTSE 100 Rises to 1-Month High as Miners Rally
0815 GMT - The FTSE 100 rises to a one-month high of 7194 points, led by mining shares as copper prices gain. Miners Anglo American, Glencore and Rio Tinto are among the biggest risers. In economic data, China's consumer price inflation eased in September but producer price inflation accelerated last month. Later in the session, U.S. weekly jobless claims figures and U.S. producer price index data are due at 1230 GMT. "A sharp drop in initial claims, and/or a month-on-month rise above 0.7% for PPI should be enough to have the Fed taper trade back on track after a short overnight staycation," Oanda analyst Jeffrey Halley says, referring to expectations that the Federal Reserve could soon start tapering asset purchases.(email@example.com)
