FTSE 100 stumbling slightly, but still up
The index has stumbled at 7300, having moved steadily higher at the end of last week. It is important to note that we could see the price move to 7220, and it would still be an uptrend off the lows of early February.
Additional support could be found at the 100-hour simple moving average (7234), and a bounce from here would suggest a return to 7300, with additional resistance at 7314 and 7360.
