It would be too soon to suggest that the circa 80-point drop from the highs of the year thus far marks an end to the rally. Indeed, this shallow pullback is the first real sign of any selling pressure for a week.
If the price holds above 6480 then another test of 6600 is likely, with a close above here targeting 6775 and then 6820. Potential support on the downside lies at 6460 and then 6380 for the FTSE 100.
