FTSE 100 drops into bearish territory
Yesterday saw the index rally to 6800, but then drop back again, with further losses on the open. If bearish momentum persists then the next target is 6680 and the lows of last week. Below here, the index may target the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at 6547. Any further losses then the rising 2016 uptrend may come into play around 6500. A rally needs to clear 6760 and then manage a daily close above 6800 to suggest that weakness has run its course.
