FTSE 100 pushing lower for now
A bounce above 7260 yesterday was defeated, with this previous support level now acting as resistance. Last week, the FTSE 100 bounced at 7192, so this is the area to look for support in case of further losses today. Below this, 7090 comes into play.
A break through the 7260-7280 zone is needed in the first instance for a bullish move, and then on through the late April high at 7300.
