Can The FTSE 100 Sustain Its Elevated Levels?

The FTSE 100 is continuing to push forward with its historic bull run and markets are now clearly set on overcoming the closely watch 7,000 mark.  It is never surprising to see this much attention spent on moves in a major stock index to surpass a significantly psychological round figure like this but the real question for investors is in whether or not these latest moves will be sustainable over the long-term.  On the supportive side is the fact that consumer inflation levels in the UK have dropped to zero.  This is a factor that is likely to prove to be important given the elevated inflation levels the region has experienced for most of the last decade.
