FTSE 100 eyes mid-August high
The index has moved swiftly higher this morning, after an indecisive day yesterday. It seems that the base for this latest bounce was formed around 6830, so that is the area of support to watch for today.
Further gains today could see the index test the peak from last week at 6930, and then beyond this the mid-August high at 6950.
