If the index has bounced from the 5900 area, then the next area to watch becomes the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at 6150. Beyond this, we look on to the 6300 area where gains faltered in the first week of the month.
If the price closes above here then it will head towards the April high above 6400. A close below 5900 in coming days will head towards 5600, presumably accompanied by fresh polls pointing to further strength for the Leave campaign.
