UK100 Index Market Influences

Government policy and geo-political changes influence the stock market hugely. The interest rate policies set by each individual country in the world has an effect on the stock markets and more correctly the companies that make up the constituents of the Index. If they increase rates it’s harder and more expensive to borrow money. When rates are cut it means money is cheaper
to borrow, which can fund expansion and growth.

The same with political changes, new trade agreements, increase in cross border taxes or the simple banning of any distribution networks can cause issues for company performance and therefore index performance.
