FTSE 100 seeks to add to gains
Strength here continues to confound overeager bears, with the index pushing above the highs seen on 22 February around 6060. A close above this level continues to point to more gains, with a bounce towards 6128 the next area to watch for.
Above here, we would be looking towards the late December high at 6300. Support in any pullback is likely around the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) at 5960, but so long as the FTSE holds above 6000, the breakout from the downward channel of the last few months remains a very bullish indicator.
