Lโ€™incremento percentuale eโ€™ settimanale

FTSE 100 (#UKX)

The #UKX had a positive week up +2.17% where it managed to strongly break above the 7,000 level.

From a technical perspective, we confirm the bullish context of the Index however we are in favour of healthy pullbacks in the near term.

The MACD crossed over but the RSI is showing negative divergence with the price: this could confirm how despite a strong move to the upside, the breath of the market is not as strong.

In addition, the #UKX is one of the few market that still did not reconcile with the 50MA: we will more in favour of further bullish moves once the indexes has retraced to the moving average.

For the week ahead, we believe the #UKX might retest the 7,000 mark before further moves: a break of current trendline might lead to additional downside moves.


Support at 7,035 and resistance at 7,145


FTSEMIB (#FTSEMIB)

The #FTSEMIB had a positive week up +1.77% where it managed to confirm the horizontal channel that has been taking place since mid-March.


From a technical perspective, the setup is relatively healthy given the re-test of 50MA: the MACD is crossing up, however very closed to the 0 level, and the RSI is pointing to the upside .


For the week ahead, we might see a continuation to the upside until 24,800 before light pullbacks


Support at 23,975 and resistance at 24,949


DAX (#DAX)

The #DAX had a positive week up +1.34% where it managed to break the descending triangle, as highlighted last week, and reverse to the upside.


From a technical perspective, the #DAX is respecting classing setup: it broke down the descending triangle to almost reconcile with the 50MA.

Once tested past resistance level, it strongly reversed to the upside ending the week with a strong bullish candle.

The MACD is showing a possible cross over while the RSI is reporting negative divergence with the price.


For the week ahead, given the strong volumes we believe the #DAX might retest current resistance before eventually reversed down given the divergence RSI-Price


Support at 15,135 and resistance at 15,510


S&P 500 (#SPX)

The #SPX had a positive week up +0.67% and it is now at another record high.


From a technical perspective, the #SPX tested the 9MA and reversed to the upside confirming the bullish momentum. As of now, we came back to the upper end of the channel with a MACD that is possibly crossing over but a RSI that is showing negative divergence with the price.

We do believe the #SPX, despite being in bullish context, still has downside potential and the risk/reward ratio is still strongly to the downside.


For the week ahead, we might see a test current resistance before eventually reversed back down.

Support at 4,190 and resistance at 4,252
