Global stocks have been lifted on hopes that politicians in Washington are close to a temporary deal that would avoid a shutdown of the U.S. government and see an extension of the federal debt ceiling into December.
This morning’s UK house price data came in ahead of expectations, showing a 1.7% increase month-on-month for September versus 0.8% expected, and a 7.4% year on year for Q3 versus 4.9% expected.
