After the breakout to new highs for the year, the question is what comes next. The next targets to watch on the upside become 6750 and then 6825, the highs from early August 2015 and then mid-July 2015 respectively.
Having seen such a relentless push higher, some weakness today would not be surprising, but so long as the price holds above 6440 then we can continue to expect gains. A close below 6440 raises the prospect of a bigger move lower, perhaps down towards 6320 and then 6200.
