The FTSE 100 responded positively on 16 July to news that Greece has voted to approve a bailout deal after hardball Eurozone negotiations.

The deal will hand over €86bn (£59.8, $93.6) to the debt stricken country in exchange for austerity measures.

"While not exactly closing the door to the threat of a possible Grexit, it appears that lawmakers in Greece have at least postponed such a move by singing up to the terms of the latest lifeline offered up by its European counterparts," says AJ Bell Investment Director Russ Mould.

The FTSE 100 gained 0.58% to close out 16 July at 6,792.60p.

The day's falling stocks included oil and gas producer BP and security company G4S at the head.

"Overall, there were about 20 blue chips lower, with miners, oil stocks, utilities and several supermarkets all featuring," said AJ Bell.
