The S&P 500 has been grinding higher

Written by

The S&P 500 (ETF Proxy – AMEX:SPY) has been grinding higher on a “flight to quality” as overseas investors are diversifying their funds against the volatility risk caused by the Greek/Eurozone crisis by bringing funds into the US Equity markets.

FTSE ticks higher but I am not so sure it can sustain these gains

Written by

After a relatively quiet first part of the previous week the FTSE made it higher on Friday, reaching the 6,950 points’ area which is pretty impressive if you take into account that investors had little news to be excited about.
