FTSE remains in the range
The FTSE is expected to open back in the range which dominated the second half of last week. Despite price action yesterday pointing towards a rally outside of the 6250-6281 range, this is less reliable than data taking place during open hours.
As such, it is worthwhile simply continuing to play the range until we see a real breakout. With that in mind, any move back down towards 6250 levels seem a good place to get long into the uptrend.
We await a closed hourly candle outside of this range to signify a break and potential spark for the next big move in this index.
