The FTSE 100is little changed in the futures market ahead of key earnings from the United States. The Footsie is trading at £6,647, which is in the same range it has been in the past few days.
FTSE 100 news: Looking at the UK calendar, there will be no major trading updates from FTSE companies today. The only earnings scheduled are by several smaller companies like Saga, DP Eurasia, and Barr. These companies will not have any impact on the index today.
Still, there will be several key companies to watch out for today. First, Royal Dutch Shell share price will be watched after the company acquired the biggest charging station company in the UK.
The deal to acquire Ubitricity that has more than 2,700 points is part of the company’s transition to clean energy. It already owns New Motion, a European charging point operator. Shell share price has dropped by more than 8% in the past two weeks.
