The FTSE 100 ended Monday 26 points lower at 5,519. The big board will be under pressure today as consumer price inflation data is released, which could dent confidence (unemployment data will be released tomorrow) - plus we had David Cameron warning yesterday that the EU is in "peril". Falls in Asia were recorded overnight with the Hang Seng down -1.13%; the Dow Jones slipped -0.61% to 12,079 yesterday.
