FTSE 100 - has consolidation come to an end?

Another Friday, and another bounce in the FTSE 100. For the third time in two months the price has tested the water below 7400 and has bounced once again. Resistance lies around 7550 and then at 7600.

The three bounces from 7400 suggest that plenty of buying is coming in to push the market higher, so we may have seen the consolidation come to an end. The more bullish outlook is maintained unless we see a daily close below 7400.

DAX – another run at 12,900?

Yesterday, 12,650 held as support once again continuing a pattern that has held since 6 June for the DAX. If this continues to hold then we could be set for another run at 12,900.

A daily close below 12,650 could open the way to 12,400 or lower, as part of a deeper retracement within a broader uptrend.

S&P 500 potential support at 2400

As at the beginning of the week, a dip to 2420 brought out the buyers. Now the S&P 500 needs to push on beyond 2440 to 2450. A breakout above 2445 would signal that the market is pushing on to all-time highs.

As before, bears need a move below 2420 to even suggest a bigger dip is coming, but 2400 still stands nearby as potential strong support.
