  • Price action suggests it may break on through soon

FTSE 100 trading at trend-line off record high

The FTSE 100 is currently trading at the trend-line running lower off the record high created over a year ago, resistance that has kept a lid on price rising the past few sessions. The consolidating nature of recent price action suggests we will soon see a breakout.

A close above 7469 will help cement a breakout and have the FTSE moving on towards the next row of resistance; 7528/552 will be next up to overcome, followed by 7600+. But resistance is resistance until it’s not even if price action is generally favorable for a breakout. A close above is the key.

In the event we see a downturn through yesterday’s low at 7373, then selling may increases as the consolidation phase begins to get compromised. The next level of support in the event of selling will be 7316, followed by the trend-line from December if things begin to accelerate.

All-in-all, things are looking up for the FTSE, we just need to see a breakout develop first.
