The FTSE100 closed up 26.27 points at 6,366.24 as U.K. stocks advanced for the first time in five days despite early morning losses.  The advance was powered by faster than estimated trade growth in China, however the index continued to be held back by  concern that policy makers are divided on steps to revive the euro-area economy.

Randgold Resources & Anglo American PLC were the top performers of the day in percentage terms, rising 4.72% and 4.38% respectively.
