Sainsbury's share is climbing up slowlyReuters

Three of the big four supermarket chains were in the top 15 risers on the FTSE 100 today, which went up by 0.32% overall.

WM Morrison Supermarkets was the second-biggest riser while Sainsbury's and Tesco's shareprices also went up, despite the fact that market researcher Kantar Worldpanel published data showing both companies' revenues went down in the 12 weeks leading up to 24 May.

Vodafone was among the biggest fallers on the FTSE 100 as shareholders seemed to change their opinion on the company's looming merger with mass media company Liberty Corporation.

The FTSE 100 experienced a jump when the European Central Bank reported unchanged interest rates and European index FTSEurofirst 300 also went up during the afternoon, but ended 0.11% down, continuing a week-long decline, as Greece's International Monetary Fund repayment deadline comes closer.
