FTSE 100 Rises as Oil Stocks Gain Due to Higher Crude Prices
The FTSE 100 rose helped by gains in some Asian markets and boosted by higher oil-linked stocks as crude oil prices rise. Royal Dutch Shell rises 2.5% and BP is up by 2.1% as the price of a barrel of Brent crude rises 1% to $77.97. "Energy prices look set to kick off the week on the front-foot once again, with surging demand and disruptions to supply driving inventories down," says IG. Germany's election resulted in an uncertain outcome, but there may be relief that a left-wing coalition looks unlikely. Better risk sentiment boosts travel stocks, with British Airways-owner International Consolidated Airlines up 3.5%. Still, FTSE 100 gains are limited as concerns linger about troubled Chinese developer Evergrande, China's regulatory crackdown and prospects of tighter monetary policy.

US Treasurys, UK Gilts Set to Slip Further
Investors are likely to continue to sell U.S. Treasurys and U.K. government bonds, pushing their yields higher, as they price in the possibility of higher interest rates, says Mizuho. "The move higher in yields should continue in U.S. Treasurys and more forcefully in GBP rates," analysts at the Japanese bank say.
