FTSE 100 with a definitive month ahead
Both bulls and bears are waiting to see whether FTSE 100 can take out the 7294 level. This key area of resistance, previously an area of support, will define the outlook for the index heading into October.
A push above this level targets 7320 and then on to 7450, the big resistance level of August. Meanwhile, a drop back below the lows of last Friday at 7194 would suggest a test of 7187 and then 7090.
