FTSE 250 laggards For 17 December 2019

The FTSE 250 index on the London Stock Exchange registered a fall of nearly 1.21 per cent in trading on the 17th of December 2019. The index opened the day with 21,920.69 points and closed the day at 21,655.17 points, a loss of 265.52 across the board. The index which had been on a minor upswing since the 11th of December 2019, got a major boost on the 13th of December 2019, when the results of the general election in the United Kingdom started coming in and had been on the trend since. The index which is representative of 250 mid-size companies of the United Kingdom is largely regarded as the barometer of the British economy on account of its exposure to a large number of sectors across the country. While the upswing on 13th of December 2019 can be explained as investors showing confidence as to what they expect of the economy of the United Kingdom, the fall on the 17th of December 2019 can be explained as a correction on account of profit booking.
