Stocks edged into the green in the early going with investors apparently opting to sit on their hands ahead of key economic data overseas due out after the close of trading in London.
Worth noting, most trading desks, both in the UK and across the Channel, were likely nearly empty ahead of the Christmas holidays, so trading volumes were expected to be low.
As of 0912 GMT, London’s top-flight index was up by 0.06% to 7,474.03, while the second-tier index was gaining 0.12% to 18,784.22.
