GBP/USD has made modest gains in today’s session after Rishi Sunak was appointed as the new British prime minister. With the Conservative party leader reiterating his commitment to restore economic stability and confidence, a slight recovery in the Sterling and failure to push through 7000 drove FTSE 100 lower.

UK FTSE 100 Technical Analysis

With the 200-week MA (moving average) providing short-term support at 6950, the 7000 psychological level has formed a firm barrier of resistance that has continued to restrict the upside move.

On the daily chart, the zone between 7000 and 7020 has proved to be an important zone of technical confluency. As prices continue to look for a distinctive break, the 78.6% retracement of the 2020 move is providing additional resistance at 7092 with a move higher drawing attention to another big psychological level of 7200.

DAX 40 Technical Analysis

For the German Dax 40, the same levels of support and resistance discussed in yesterday’s analysis continue to hold. After a brief temporary retest of 13000, failure to maintain bullish momentum above this level allowed sellers to drive price action lower. With Dax futures currently trading around the 12847 handle, additional selling pressure could see the 12700-handle coming back into play.
