The FTSE 100 index for the UK raises questions about a "broken UK" economy. Perhaps you could argue that these numbers contain an assumption that a Tory government will form this year, but even so it is obvious investors don't see the Tories as having too much trouble mending a broken economy. An invest of 350 dollars last year would now be worth almost 550. Certainly that came after a terrible a major fall, but we see solid evidence of a economy still very much alive and still very much facing problems most investors think it can solve.
But then again why would anyone read too much "reason" within the acts of investors.
