    BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg to step down next year

    BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg is to leave the oil major next year. Mr Svanberg took up the position just four months before the Gulf of Mexico disaster in April 2010. Eleven workers died in the explosion and fire aboard the Deepwater Horizon rig - with the blowout then resulting in the worst environmental catastrophe in US history as an estimated five million barrels of oil spilled into the sea over 87 days.

    British stocks fall as profit warnings bruise IWG, Interserve

    Britain's main share index (.FTSE) fell 0.3 percent on Thursday as a weak third-quarter update from Unilever weighed, while mid- and small-cap trading was marred by profit warnings from IWG and Interserve which slashed their market value by a third. Disappointing retail sales figures sent sterling to a one-week low before recovering, helping the internationally-exposed FTSE reduce earlier losses slightly. Fresh from a record close, the FTSE 250 (.FTMC) ended 0.6 percent lower as workspace group IWG (IWG.L) plummeted 32.2 percent after warning on profit.

    30 years on: How Black Monday stunned markets - and could it happen again?

    On this day, 30 years ago, stock markets around the world suffered a collective heart attack. There have been plenty of grim times for markets since, such as the three years during which the FTSE 100 fell after the dot-com bubble burst, or the precipitous fall between late 2007 and early 2009 as the global financial crisis struck. The 10.84% fall that the FTSE-100 suffered that day and the 12.22% fall it endured the following day remain the biggest one-day falls, in percentage terms, that the index has suffered in its 33-year history - far worse than any of the murderous one-day declines that the index suffered at the height of the financial crisis in 2008.

    FTSE 100 Index Price Forecast October 19, 2017, Technical Analysis

    The FTSE 100 rallied slightly during the day on Wednesday, but then pulled back a bit from the 7550 level. I believe that the market continues to consolidate between the 7500-level underneath, and the 7550 level above. Given enough time, the market should continue to go above the 7550 level, and reach towards the 7600 … Continue reading FTSE 100 Index Price Forecast October 19, 2017, Technical Analysis
