FTSE 100 claws its way higher
The index is nosing its way above 6800, notching up new highs for the year thus far. The next area to watch would be the June 2015 highs around 6860.
The strong leg higher at the end of last week would seem to suggest that ‘buy the dips’ remains the approach here, with some support around 6774, and then down to 6700.
