FTSE 100: Testing Resistance

Upside in the FTSE 100 remains capped at last week’s high (6234), which also coincides with the 50% Fibonacci retracement from the Q1 sell-off. However, given the persistent rally across equity markets, upside risks remain, which in turn could see a test of 6400. That said, near term support resides at 6030-50 keeping the bullish momentum intact, although failure to hold raises the risk of a pullback to 5890 (38.2% fib).
