The FTSE 100 climbed +0.01% yesterday to 5,805 (+0.027 higher). Carnival was the biggest climber, up +3.04%, while Evraz saw the biggest drag on its shares, down -5.95%.

Overnight in Asia stocks have fallen, partly on lower-than-expected results from Apple and Canon with the Nikkei giving away much of Thursday's gains; it fell more than -1% to 8,969, down nearly 0.5% on the week.
