Technical Analyst, Saxo Bank

FTSE 100 key support at 7,700. A close below could lead to a sell-off down to around 7,500.
FTSE 100 is still above the cloud area and above 55 and 100 Moving Average i.e., in a bullish trend.

However, indicators are not conclusive and aligned. The 55 Moving Average is declining whereas the 100 Moving Average is rising.  
RSI Positive sentiment and no divergence indicates higher FTSE 100 with strong resistance at around 7,947. However, a close below 7,700 is likely to reverse that scenario.
