FTSE 100 shows a shy move higher
A flat day yesterday has been followed by a modest push higher, towards the 7330 level that marked the pre-market peak on Monday. Above this we have 7360 and the downtrend line off the all-time highs.
This has held since March, so the bulls need to break this to spark the kind of breakout on the FTSE that we have seen of late on other indices. A drop back today could find support at 7290, then down to 7260 and then to 7192.
