FTSE 100 looks to make gains
The index took a look at the area below the rising September trendline, but a swift bounce in the second-half of the day meant that this level is holding for now, with a good attempt by buyers to reverse the bearish momentum of the previous three sessions.
If the price can get back above 7050 then a more optimistic view might prevail. However, a failure to get back above this level would likely send the index back to 6980 and then through the trendline to 6950.
