FTSE 100 eyes 6309
The strong move yesterday puts the initiative back into the hands of the bulls. The close above the high of late January (6126) essentially ignites a new uptrend, so 'buy the dips' remains in effect for the time being.
The next upside targets are 6309 and then 6447, the latter being the December high and resistance throughout last October.
Dips back towards 6120 today should see fresh momentum, and it still needs a move back below 6000 to cancel the bullish outlook for the FTSE.
