FTSE 100 eyes 7200
The index has spent the week within touching distance of 7200, but has been unable to hold on above this level. The first task for bears is to push below 7160, which would open the way to 7100 and then 7070.
Momentum seems to have drained away this week, with the possibility of a modest correction now in the offing.
