FTSE 100 Led Higher by Energy Stocks as Oil Prices Rise

0750 GMT - The FTSE 100 gains 1.0% to 7241 points, led by energy stocks as oil prices rise on tight supply concerns. Harbour Energy, BP and Shell are the top performers on London's top tier index. Despite the possible dent in crude demand after cities in eastern China tightened Covid-19 restrictions, the "supply side of the equation remains tight, exacerbated by possible outages in Libya and shutdowns in Norway," Interactive Investor analyst Richard Hunter writes. The FTSE 100's rise follows mixed trading in Asia overnight while the U.S. stock market is closed for the Fourth of July holiday, which may reduce trading volumes. (renae.dyer@wsj.com)
