FTSE 100 LIVE: Stocks rally as investors take risk – but Brexit fears could derail growth

On Wednesday the FTSE 100 grow by 82 points to close at 6,012. However, with tensions between Britain and the EU over Brexit continuing to mount, the index remains vulnerable.

The UK Government has published it’s Internal Markets Bill, which proposes overriding aspects of the EU withdrawal agreement signed between the two trading partners last autumn.

Brussels has warned Britain will be breaking international law if it renegades on the treaty.

The row took its toll on the FTSE 250 yesterday as the UK company focused index finished 30 points down on the start of the day.

Further developments in the Brexit row today could further impact the stock as well as take a hit on the FTSE 100.
