For the FTSE-100, a lot of it is caused more directly by the high price of oil -- about 1/3 of the FTSE-100 is accounted for by Shell and BP, as far as I recall, so increases in oil prices will automatically give it a big boost.

not necessarily....the hike in oil price will protect the index,but a lower oil price translates to lower overheads for the economy as a whole(even though BP/shell will be retreating when it does)....so heads it wins,tails you lose.

indices like the dax are given a pounding when the oil price goes up,but outperform when it goes down.

....if the iran war kicks off and oil DOES spike up over $100 bbl,then germany and nasdaq would be my favoured plays at the peak.......similar to shorting the oil price.
