Technical Analyst, Saxo Bank

FTSE 100 closed just back above key support. But Mid-Cap index FTSE 250 closed below indicating lower levels


FTSE 100
dipped below its key support at 7K Friday but close above. Future points to an open above. However, selling pressure could soon return and if FTSE closes below 7K there it will be looking at next strong key support at around 6,800.
200 weekly Simple Moving Average (SMA) is an important Pivot for FTSE 100. A weekly close below will be a major bearish signal medium to long term.  Since the Index closed above May 2021 it has dipped below 200 weekly SMA several times only to close above moving higher from there.
To reverse this bearish picture a close above 7.515 is needed.
