We finally had the open above 6700 that could indicate more upside momentum. The next target looks likely to be the 6820 area, last seen in July 2015. Yesterday’s modest dip brought out more buyers, although they now need to push on through 6745, the high from 14 July.
A failure to push on above here dents the bullish outlook, but it will take a move below 6650 to really send any indication that more weakness is on the way for the FTSE.
