FTSE 100 aiming to challenge highs of October
As news flow dries up, it looks like the FTSE's drift higher will continue to dominate. The October high around 7134 is now less than 100 points away, with 7078 and 7108 potential areas of resistance along the way.
We could see 6999 and then 6969 provide support, but it would still need a move below 6877 to really indicate that a shift downward is in play.
