FTSE unable to over resistance
Despite an attempt to move through 6400 yesterday the index found itself unable to sustain gains, slipping lower once more. However, the selling stopped around 6360, so the bears need to push through this early on in the session. A break through 6350 would head towards the 2 November low around 6320, and then on to the 21/22 October support zone close to 6300. Any upside on NFP day needs to clear 6380, but with resistance at 6400 and then 6420 it may be a struggle to move much higher.
