FTSE 100 could test 6612
Despite a strong performance from heavyweight oil stocks yesterday, the FTSE 100 finished well off its highs, and indeed surrendered almost all the gains from the early part of the session.
Having fallen below the rising hourly trendline we could see price test the Tuesday lows toward 6730. A bigger move lower could see the price test the 6612 support area.
