I see things rather differently to most on here.
FTSE 100 is more a measure of the global economy, and although it has recovered since the referendum, it is still down 20% this year, due to BREXIT fears.
The FTSE 250, a much more accurate measure of the British economy, down 30% this year.
Increase in hate crimes, not a BBC scare story, but actual cases reported to the police.
Scotland want to leave the Union, maybe NI. to.
Everything is not returning to normal.
The EU has deep flaws, but it will be very hard to change things from the outside, and the rest of Europe will want to punish us.
Boris the next PM? No effective opposition, the list goes on.

I do check a part of the FTSE from time to time myself and in January 2012 this part was below 6000. In January 2015 it hit what was then said to be an "all-time high" of just above 7000 though this was only briefly. In January 2016 the highest point was around 6500 - now it's around the 6300 mark which is what it was before the referendum results came out.
