FTSE 100 – will the 7300 zone hold?
The FTSE 100 balance looks to be swinging back to the bears, with the close back below 7360 yesterday. Bulls must once again hope that the 7300 zone holds, as it has done since late June, otherwise we could see a drop to 7260 or lower over the coming weeks.
Any recovery requires a close back above 7360 and then above 7450.
