The creation of the FTSE index was a combination of the “Financial Times” newspaper and the LSE, which is why it’s called the Financial Times Stock Exchange or FTSE.

What Is the FTSE 100 Index?
The stock market wouldn’t be what it is today without the London Stock Exchange and the FTSE 100. There are some key things to consider with this stock index. Even though it is a very popular index, it is not the best measurement of the UK economy, because many companies listed on the exchange can get as much as 75% of their earnings from countries outside of the UK.
Brexit has changed the climate. Since the UK entered the EU, and left officially as “Brexit” there has been four recessions. With the current global economic situation, many are (albeit early) calling for another global slowdown of the global economy. February 2020 has been one of the worst months in years for the stock market and investors are watching the charts and economic reports extremely carefully.
Brexiters believe that the UK’s long term problems will be solved moving forward. These problems consist of competitiveness on the global marketplace, historically weak investment in their companies, and trade deficits. Time will tell!

Brexit Effect on FTSE 100 Index?
Brexit is the withdrawal of the UK (United Kingdom) from the EU (European Union). There was a referendum that took place in June of 2016. 52% of the people voted to leave and 48% voted to remain in the EU. Brexit has officially taken place on January 31, 2020. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party won a victory back in December 2019 during the general election.
Brexit didn’t seem to phase the FTSE 100, since the market skyrocketed until around February 20, 2020 until the FTSE Index started to drop. So, what’s up for the FTSE 100 after Brexit? Well, there’s a new potential problem that has taken place since Brexit, and that is the Coronavirus. The Coronavirus has actually shook all markets worldwide, not just the Footsie.
How to Trade FTSE 100
Futures trading is also another popular way to make money trading the Footsie. $FTU is the symbol for futures. Futures trading allows you the ability to go long or short the FTSE 100. You can day trade or swing trade futures. Options and futures are both great strategies to make money both in bullish and bearish Footsie markets.
