FTSE 100 steadies after recent falls
The FTSE 100 remains under selling pressure, and yesterday’s drop from 7660 suggests more downside is likely.
The index fell below the 7590 support level, and so far this morning has not been able to recover this level. Below 7540, the 7490 area comes into view, and then 7390. A move back above 7600 would suggest near-term bullish strength.
