UK FTSE 100 (.FTSE) supported by buyers
The spike higher earlier on yesterday was followed by an intraday pullback, but dip buyers came in around 6980, and the FTSE 100 then pushed higher.
An area of resistance over the past week has been 7060, so a move above this would be a bullish development. Both 7100 and then 7127 come into view. A move below 6980 is needed to suggest a more bearish view has developed.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 7,164.35.
The projected lower bound is: 6,831.63.
The projected closing price is: 6,997.99.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 3 white candles and 7 black candles for a net of 4 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 22 white candles and 28 black candles for a net of 6 black candles.
