The data shows investor confidence has declined consistently since May 2000, apart from an upturn in confidence at the end of the year.

But the latest results still shows 28 per cent believe the FTSE 100 will be higher in six months, compared to 26 per cent who think it will be lower.

The CFAM confidence index surveys 500 investors each month and asks whether they think the UK stockmarket will be higher or lower in six months time.
