Morning Market Report

The market finished slightly down in the wake of a bad day's trade for Leighton and Nexus.

The Market is down 35 points.

The Dow Jones was down 110 points at 16,734 — the market drifted lower from the open, driven by weaker retail sales data and concerns about increasing violence in Iraq which led to a 2% increase in the oil price. Unsurprisingly, the Energy sector was the best performer, while Consumer Discretionary, Consumer Staples and Industrials underperformed. Volume continued to be below average and the market traded in a 138 point range.
