Weakness persists here, with the index unable to push on beyond 6200. So far this morning dips below 6140 have been bought, repeating the pattern that has been in effect since last Wednesday.
So long as this area holds it looks like bearish momentum will be hard to sustain for the FTSE. However, as has been said all week, 6200-6220 remains too strong for buyers to clear, so we seemed doomed so some more rangebound trading for the time being.
