FTSE 100 rallying from 76.4% retracement
FTSE 100 is regaining some composure following a sharp drop at the tail end of last week. The drop below 7300 paved the way for a strong move to the downside. However, with the 76.4% level having clearly provided support around 7200, there is a good chance we could see further upside to come from here.
A break back below 7195 would bring a worrying outlook, with the potential for a move below the key 7088 level. Until then, it looks likely that we could see a rebound into the 7300 resistance level, at which point questions would be asked.
