FTSE could fall to 6000
Having fallen through the 50-day SMA (6250) yesterday, the index may well be on its way to test the bottom end of the rising channel on the daily chart. Some support is possible around 6093, but otherwise 6000 could be the next destination. Intraday bounces may take the price as far as the daily pivot at 6197, but for the moment these will likely be viewed as fresh selling opportunities.
