FTSE 100

The UK Financial Times Stock Exchange 100, otherwise known as the FTSE 100 or 'Footsie', is an index of share prices of the biggest 100 organizations listed on the London Stock Exchange by market cap. The index was introduced on January 3, 1984, at a base value of 1000, and the index level is computed in real-time. The FTSE 100 is representative of nearly 81% of the complete market capitalization of the LSE, and although it doesn't include the entire market, it is broadly seen as the strongest indicator of the health of UK stocks.
