FTSE 100 continues to gain
Small gains this morning come after a very strong finish to last week. The price looks somewhat overextended to the upside, with a pullback likely to take the edge off the bullish momentum seen since Wednesday. As long as the price holds 7200, we should expect further upside.
The first areas to look for on the upside are 7314 and 7360, with dips welcomed as further buying opportunities.
