FTSE 100 aims for April high
Gains petered out just below 6300 at the end of last month, but a break higher through here would signal a rally towards the mid-April high around 6430. This is also the key 6430/6450 zone where gains faltered in October and early December last year, so over the longer-term a move above here would be regarded as very bullish.
The next real target on the way higher would be 6800. A break back below 6200 would invalidate the bullish outlook, and put the index back on course to test the 6060 support zone that has prevailed on the downside since late March.
