FTSE 100 drops below key support
The FTSE 100 has continued to suffer, with the risk-off sentiment ramped up once more thanks to Donald Trump. Now that we have seen the price break below the 7341 mark, this has bearish implications going forward. This now paints any rallies as something to be sold into.
The current bounce we are seeing on the hourly chart is moving back towards that 7341 resistance level, which would look like an area for the sellers to come back into. A bearish outlook is now in play unless we see the price break above 7354.
