                                        FTSE rallies as market suffers whiplash from UK politics

                                        The FTSE rallied on Friday but a look back at the past week shows the index has barely nudged higher than where it started.

                                          The FTSE and other European indices have moved very little on opening as the markets brace for three key central bank meetings.

                                            Having started the day with its head barely above water the FTSE performed a U-turn and rallied nearly 0.67% during the afternoon trading.
