FTSE 100 shows little movement
The index has essentially gone nowhere for two days, hovering in the 6120-6180 range. The overall uptrend remains in place, but with non-farm payrolls (NFP) on tap for today it makes sense to wait for a more significant dip back towards at least 6100, or even below this, closer to 6000.
We would need to see a close below 6000 to really suggest the bounce has run its course. Upside targets still lie in the direction of 6300 and then 6400.
