FTSE 100 could see 6945
The index has clawed its way off the lows of Monday’s session, but there is plenty of resistance in the short term. The 7194, 7210 and 7236 levels all stand in the way of further gains with the index needing a daily close above 7250 to indicate that a new leg higher is underway.
Bears need to push the price below 7130, which would open the way to 7020 and then 6945.
