CITY VIEWS: IS THE SKY THE LIMIT FOR THE FTSE 100?

<strong>CHRIS BRANDON </strong> XSIGO SYSTEMS<br />&ldquo;It&rsquo;s too soon to assume the FTSEwill keep on going up &ndash; I expect it will level off quite quickly. I think the issue at the moment is profits and as we come&nbsp; to the end of the financial year it could turn out that they are not as spectacular as people have been hoping.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>CHARLIE GREEN </strong>EMMET GREEN ASSOCIATES<br />&ldquo;It will not go back to where it was, but it will keep on going up for a while. There&rsquo;s a lot of negative news, but there is a wall of money that&rsquo;s still sitting there waiting to go in to equity markets. There could be a&nbsp; correction, but not for two or three months from now.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>PETER SIDERMAN </strong>ELKA HILL PARTNERSHIPS<br />&ldquo;Obviously there is a lot of talk of a &lsquo;double-dip&rsquo; fall based on falls in housing or asset prices, but I think the FTSEis being driven more by changes in the exchange rate.I think it could reach 6,000 points in the next month and a half &ndash; but, it will be a bumpy ride.&rdquo;
