London shares tread water after new high
 

London's FTSE 100 index stayed just below the record high set on Thursday in quiet pre-New Year trading.
The FTSE was down 8.75 at 7,111.51.
The biggest faller was outsourcing company, Capita, with shares down 3%. Oil nudged higher, rising 0.4% to $57.09 a barrel. The commodity has almost doubled from this year's low of $30 a barrel.
In currencies, the pound was up 0.24% against the dollar at $1.2292 but fell 0.1% against the euro to €1.1676.
The London market will close at 12.30 GMT, as is usual for its final session before the New Year.
