Market Extra: U.K. stocks turn Brexit into boost, on track for best quarter since 2013

Brexit, what Brexit?

In the first full calendar quarter that followed the U.K.’s vote to leave the European Union, the country’s benchmark stock index is set to bang out its best quarterly performance in more than three years, defying fears of a stock market meltdown.

With only one trading day left in the quarter, the FTSE 100 index UKX, -0.81% is up 5.4% for the period, marking its best three-month climb since March 2013. In comparison, the pan-European Stoxx Europe 600 index SXXP, -0.90% is up 2.9%, while the U.S. benchmark S&P 500 index SXP, +1.21% is eyeing a 2.5% third-quarter advance.
