  • FTSE 100 up 0.4%, FTSE 250 adds 0.3%

June 27 (Reuters) – UK’s FTSE 100 rose on Monday, as an easing of COVID-19 restrictions in China brought relief to commodity prices, lifting shares of major oil and mining companies.

The commodity-heavy FTSE 100 (.FTSE) was up 0.4%, as of 0704 GMT, while mid-cap FTSE 250 index (.FTMC) edged 0.3% higher.

The risk sentiment improved following a Wall Street rally late last week and a rebound in copper and iron ore prices on Monday, boosted by an easing COVID-19 restrictions in Shanghai and relaxed testing mandates in several Chinese cities.
