Weekly market brief: 26 - 30 July 2021

FTSE 100 (#UKX)

The FTSE 100 had a positive week up + 1.55%.

For the week ahead, we believe the positive trend can continue with the ultimate target at 7.165.


This week the index retested the intermediate resistance level at 6.822 and then returned to the upside.

MACD is crossing to the upside and a break of 0 could give further boost to the index. RSI, after almost reaching oversold, has room to support a bullish movement, considering also that it has managed to break the bearish trend line.

Given the last few months, we can see how the FTSE100 moves between 6,856 and 7,175. This week the index tested the bottom of the channel and we believe it can now target to the top it.

Support at 6,980

Resistance at 7.165


The FTSEMIB had a positive week up + 2.62%

For the coming week we expect a continuation of the uptrend with a target of 25.554.


The FTSEMIB continues to remain below the 50MA but we believe there may now be enough momentum to break above it.

MACD is about to crossover to the upside which would support a further bullish extension.

RSI is now at 53, a resistance level rejected several times. A surpassing of it would open the way to a bullish momentum.

The index is once again reaching the upper part of the bearish channel: unlike in the previous times, now MACD and RSI are close to a bullish movement that could support the break of the channel.

Support at 24.930

Resistance at 25.554


The DAX ended the week up + 1.69%

For the week we expect a continuation of the uptrend with a target of 15.800


After a retracement to intermediate support levels, the DAX has returned to the upside with a strong break of the 50MA.

MACD is crossing to the upside and breaking out of the 0 level

RSI is approaching the level of 55, which has played the role of resistance for the last month: a break of it would confirm and support a continuation of bullish moves.

Support at 15.306

Resistance at 15.736

S&P500 (#SPX)

The S & P 500 had a positive week up by + 3.32%

For the coming week, the index could continue the bullish move targeting 4.468


The rejoining with the 50MA lead to a strong reversal to the upside, hitting a new high.

The bullish momentum is supported by a MACD which seems to cross to the upside and the RSI which has not yet reached the overbought zone.

However, a negative note is given by a divergence between RSI and price that could lead to further retracements in the near future.

For the moment, however, we are in favour of a bullish continuation

Support at 4.390

Resistance at 4.468
