FTSE edge higher, WPP gets boost from Publicis

LONDON Mon Nov 12, 2012 3:26am EST

LONDON Nov 12 (Reuters) - Britain's top share index edged higher on Monday, helped by gains for advertising firm WPP after French peer Publicis said on Sunday that demand for advertising rebounded in October.

Broader market sentiment remained cautious, however, as uncertainty over Greek aid talks and the U.S. fiscal policy outlook was compounded by weak growth data in Japan.

By 0825 GMT, the FTSE 100 was up 0.2 percent at 5,779.15 points, having closed 0.1 percent lower in a choppy session on Friday. (Reporting by David Brett; editing by Simon Jessop)
