UK FTSE 100 (.FTSE) pushes higher
The powerful move higher continues in the FTSE 100, as the index clears the 7405 high from 18 November and targets 7440.
Previous attempts to clear this level have run out of steam, but a daily close above this level targets 7560 and 7650. The price has been able to rally through the 50, 100 and 200-hour simple moving average (SMA) and thus intraday pullbacks towards these SMAs could provide further buying opportunities.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
The projected upper bound is: 7,566.16.
The projected lower bound is: 7,243.43.
The projected closing price is: 7,404.79.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 27 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 4 white candles.
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
