FTSE 100 Resistance and Support
On the technical analysis side, FTSE 100 has cancelled the recent rebound from seven-week lows on Brexit agreement news and high volatility in GBPUSD. The index formed a death cross last week as the 50-day moving average crossed below the 200-day MA giving a bearish signal for FTSE. On the downside, first support stands at 7,146 today’s low, while a break below will open the way for a test of 7,027 the August low. Below this level, the next support comes in at the lows seen on February 2019, at 6,966. On the flip side FTSE facing the resistance at 7,175 daily high and then at 7.267 the 200-day moving average, a close above could open the way for a move up to 7,335 the 100-day moving average.
