FTSE 100 struggles to make gains
Yesterday saw the index test, and then drop back from, the all-time highs, while for the time being the 7050 area seems to be holding as support.
Over the past few days, moves back to the zone between 7000 and 7050 have seen buyers step in, so bears will need to see sustained price action below 7000. A bounce today needs to clear 7130 to maintain upward momentum.
