Dow Jones | Bulls in Driving Seat, However, Modest Pullback is on the Horizon

The Dow Jones had finally pushed to fresh record highs after lagging other major US equity markets. That said, while momentum indicators continue to tilt towards the upside, the bullish DMI indicator is beginning to ease. Alongside this, the RSI has also pulled back slightly, having neared overbought territory, while a bearish RSI divergence has also occurred, which in turn raises the risk of a potential pull back in the index, whereby we would look towards a test of 27400.

FTSE 100 | Key Fib Curbs Further Upside

Modest gains for the FTSE 100 throughout the week, however, yet again, topside resistance in the form of the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement (7440) held firm and thus curbed further upside in the index. Consequently, this places support at 7310-20 in focus, which represents the weekly low and bottom of the rising channel, as such, failure to hold could see the index push towards 7261 (38.2% Fibonacci retracement).
