FTSE 100 weaker in opening moves
Early trading is seeing the FTSE 100 eat into the gains from the latter part of yesterday’s session, although it remains around the point where it started the week, and above support at 7350.
If this holds then a move back above 7400 is on the cards, challenging the 7436 high. Below 7350, the 7300 level comes into play as possible support.
