FTSE edge higher, WPP gets boost from Publicis
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.
