FTSE 100 aims for April high
The index was knocked back below 6300 yesterday, with the price still unable to push much higher. If it does close above 6300, the next target is 6430 and the April high.
A failure to push on today may suggest bullish momentum is fading and that the price will return to the key support zone around 6060. Only a move through the April high will signal the uptrend from the February lows is back in action.
