The Euro crisis may have dragged the Index of Banks down but if you drill down in to the Ftse 100, amongst the best performers you will find Barclays (+4) and Lloyds TSB (+5) during the same period. Notably Sinergi Heatmap weakest scores of (-5) and (-6) have been seen in the Telecoms Index during this period.
