FTSE 100 tries to climb higher
The FTSE 100 has gapped higher this morning, but is finding it hard, for the time being, to muster further momentum to move on beyond 7370.
If it is able to cross this zone, then the 7409, 7427, and 7448 areas come into play. Last Friday saw a major test of the 7294 area, and for now the buyers are able to hold the line. Below this, 7260, and then 7195 are potential areas of support.
