FTSE 100 seeks to stay above 6800
The move above 6800 finally looks to be taking hold. If the price can close above the 100-day simple moving average (SMA) - 6830 - then a move to 6900 and higher is possible.
If we see yet another failure to rally, the index could drop towards 6612 and then the 200-day SMA (currently 6508).
