LONDON, June 25 Britain's top share index edged
up from 5-1/2 month lows on Tuesday, with investors seeing value
in some stocks after the recent market rout, but a profit
warning from Rexam underscored ongoing risks.
The FTSE 100 was up 40.19 points, or 0.7 percent, at
6,069.29 points by 0705 GMT.
Traders also cited speculation that a scheduled press
conference with Chinese central bank and other officials on
Tuesday could yield some kind of an announcement to address
recent market turmoil and liquidity issues.
Rexam, however, was the top faller, down 6.3 percent, after
the beverage can maker said first half operating profits would
be modestly lower than expected.
