IAG Share Price Remains Strong Despite Weakness In FTSE 100 Index

IAG (LON: IAG) share price has shown great strength in the past few weeks. Despite a massive pullback in FTSE 100 index, the shares of International Consolidated Airlines Group have remained somewhat resilient. The stock still seems to have more upside as its bullish market structure remains intact.

The UK shares showed a mixed sentiment at the start of this week. The benchmark FTSE 100 index rose by 24 points as most of its constituents attempted recovery. IAG shares were also up 1.53% on Monday after a pullback at the end of last week.

IAG Share Price Rebounds From June Lows

A look at the following LON: IAG chart reveals that the shares have rebounded from June low of 153p. As long as this level holds, my IAG share price forecast of 170p will remain valid. However, a breakdown below the 153p level will be very bearish and can cause a major reversal in stock price.

In case of a breakdown, the first target for the bulls will be the April lows of 143.55p. The recent breakdown of the FTSE 100 index below 7,300 points has opened the doors of the biggest correction in the UK stock market. IAG stock is one of the few shares which is still showing some strength.
