FTSE 100 close in positive territory

Otmane El Rhazi, Tuesday, April 15: The FTSE 100 is expected to open marginally higher this morning, continuing a turnaround seen late yesterday, after US retail sales data and strong earnings from Citigroup boosted investor sentiment.

Trading platform IG is indicating the Footsie will open today around seven points higher at 6,590. The day’s earnings reports include first-quarter updates from Anglo-Australian miner Rio Tinto (LON:RIO), temporary power provider Aggreko (LON:AGG) and automotive manufacturer GKN (LON:GKN).
