FTSE 100 above 7700 once again
Early gains for the FTSE 100 yesterday were given back in the afternoon session, but a recovery in the US saw the futures push higher overnight, with a renewed move above 7700 this morning.
The next levels to watch come in at 7730, 7800 and then the all-time high at 7900. A dip back to 7650 may find support, while below this 7590 comes into view. A daily close below this is needed to reverse the bullish outlook.
